The Boston Almanac for the Year 1856.
Published 1856, Boston by Damrell & Moore & George Coolidge.
240 pages. Text in English.
Engraved folding city plan map at front. Please see photos for condition.
Cloth covered boards, lovely floral embossed patterns, smooth spine, gilt title.
Book remains well preserved and very attractive on the shelf. Map is quite uniformly age browned but still clean, some splitting to paper.
It displays a beautiful age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
The map is printed on paper which has toned and is now extensively split along original fold lines. There appears to be no loss of printed area, so if desired it could readily be backed and made attractive outside the book.
Please review photos for more detail and our best attempt to convey how this antique item survives.
