Two unrecorded almanacs and one known from a single copy, all attractively bound in Dutch floral wrappers.

1761. January hath xxxi Days; no publisher given [pp] 18 but printed on a single slip and folded, concertina-fashion, to form the pages. Stab sewn Dutch floral wrappers, ink date to upper cover ‘1761’, wear to the spine fold. Stamp duty fold out slip above the first page, present but detached. Internally very good: the Calendar is followed by a table of monarchs, eclipses, Oxford and Cambridge terms and coinage. No copies located.

1772. January hath xxxi Days no publisher given [pp] 18 but printed on a single slip and folded, concertina-fashion, to form the pages. Stab sewn Dutch floral wrappers, ink date to upper cover ‘1772’, wear to the spine fold. Stamp duty fold out slip above the first page present. Internally very good: the Calendar is followed by a table of monarchs, eclipses, Oxford and Cambridge terms and coinage. No copies located.

1788. January XXXI Days 1772; no publisher given [pp] 18 but printed on a single slip and folded, concertina-fashion, to form the pages. Stab sewn Dutch floral wrappers, ink date to upper cover ‘1788’. This copy has been bound without a back strip, one floral wrapper to each cover. Stamp duty fold out slip not present. Internally very good: the Calendar is followed by a table of monarchs, eclipses, Oxford and Cambridge terms and coinage. A couple of tiny marginal lines as annotations. 1 copy at National Archives.

These almanacs fill in the gaps in a known sequence of these anonymous almanacs almost certainly printed in London. The earlier 2 of these copies are otherwise unlocated and 1 exists in a unique example at the National Archives along with 17 other unique copies that were printed from the 1730s to the 1780s. Almanacs were the bestsellers of their time and a source of tax revenue as witnessed by the two surviving Stamp Duty slips in these copies.
