1 Egelmann, Carl Freidrich Der Neue Readinger Calender. Der Neue, Americanische Landwirthschaftscalender, Auf das Jahr unsers heilandes Jesu Christi, 1835, welches ein gemeines Jahr von 365 Tagen ist, . . .
Reading, PA Johann Ritter und Comp. 1834 30th Edition (meaning, 34th yearly almanac) Wraps. Sticked, arguably no binding at all. Fair 
8vo. 21 by 16.5 cm. 32 pp., including cover wraps. Woodcut of American eagle emblem and farmers sowing field before buildings that look more German than American. Opens with an adventure of Russian sailors who landed on a desert island in 1743. Other stories follow, interspersed between the usual almanac astronomical, horoscope and calendar info. Travel and exploration seems to have been a running theme in this particular almanac, with a story about a New Englander going to Guinea in Africa, etc. Also a few witticisms and health tips. Two strips of scotch tape appended to binding. Rough edges, with chewed corners. Chips on rear cover, with text in one corner hidden (but not lost) under tape. Heavy soiling and foxing. 
Price: 250.00 USD
