1 Egelmann, Carl F. Der Volksfreund und Hagerstauner Calender, Auf das Jahr unsers heilandes Jesu Christi, 1831, Welches ein gemeines Jahr von 365 Tagen ist.
Hagerstaun (Hagerstown, MD) Johann Gruber 1830 34th Edition (meaning, 34th yearly almanac) Wraps. Fair 
8vo. 21 by 17 cm. 26 pp., including cover -- possibly lacking outer cover. Much material on the sun, the moon, the stars and a comet. An interesting shaped poem on drunkenness, entitled "Baum der Trunkenheit", or "Tree of Drunkenness", which is cleverly shaped like a tree. Assorted other short pieces, including ones on beer and winemaking, a remedy for a dog bite, several poems. A section on routes to and from Hagerstown (to Baltimore, Washington, Pittsburgh, etc.) Close to a page on the courts in Maryland,etc. Upper corner chewed, not touching content. Other edge chips. Heavily toned and foxed/soiled. A few pencil marks. Still easily readable, and improbable to find in a substantially better state.

2 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.
