 THE COMIC ALMANAC, For The Year 1872.     Philadelphia, Miller & Elder, No. 430 Market Street

An almanac which combines both the usual  monthly calculations and other useful information with 19th century illustrated humor. These comical little vignettes could be considered the precursor to our modern day newspaper comics. The front cover displays "Father Time" introducing the "Young Mr. 1872" to the old "Mr. 1871." Inside the front cover is the Zodiac chart as it relates to the human body. This page also includes dates of eclipses, Feast Days of the Church and lunar phases.

The almanac then has the monthly calcualtions regarding the sun and the moon for the North, South, East and West. Interspersed throughout are instructive stories with a humorous bent. These are coupled with many satirical illustrations depicting women's fashions, other countries, etc. The back page features a large pyramid shaped multiplication table.

Pamphlet form bound with old or original string. Almanac measures approximately 6-1/4" by 7-3/4".  Complete with 36 pages. Age toning, frayed edges and curled corners, chipping and usual areas of small loss. Fragile as 19th century pamphlets will be. Pictures taken under different lighting ; any differences in coloration of my pictures because of this. Alamanc pages and covers uniform in tone and color.

Go to our E-BAY STORE and check out the many other dime noevls and periodicals as well. Will combine to reduce shipping costs.
