This week I have listed a mixed group of items , I will point out any faults where relevant so if there are none mentioned the items are in good ready to display condition and multiple purchases will attract postal discounts.

Please note all parcels will require a signature and my postal costs reflect this extra charge.

Here we have an Almanac of London for 1786 with its original tooled leather slipcase.

As images show the covers bear the images of Monsieur Blanchard and Vincent Lunardi Esq pioneers of balloon flight in the early years.

The book has Royal Family birth dates and holidays and to these pages there is a red tax stamp.

It has a list of Lord Mayors and Sheriffs from 1765 to 1786.

A list of Kings and Queens and their reigns.

A calendar with lunar cycles and finally images of prominent people of the day:

Joseph The Second Emperor of Germany

Mr Necker the French Financier

The Right Honourable William Pitt

The slip cover measures 2.5" high by 1.5" wide the book fits comfortably inside.

There are no tears or defacing to the book, the cover has wear to the surface as images show, for it's age it is a good condition example.
