Beautifully bound collection of a dozen almanacs with vellum markers protruding from the foreedge in a red goatskin binding with George I's initials to the corners of the boards, all edges gilt. The head of the spine is rubbed with loss of half a centimeter of leather, the spine is also sunned. Marbled endpapers with bookplate of 'T Beale' to the first pastedown. The preliminaries and first three almanac have been damp in the past, affecting the tail of the pages, to the extent of drying and some loss at the foot of the pages of the first almanac and visible staining for the next two imprints. The rest of the book is unaffected except for the last three or four leaves of the book which are also stained with slight loss to the tail of the pages. Otherwise a most attractive volume, entirely unsophisticated and containing the following imprints in the form in which a well-heeled buyer would first have encountered them:

2. Great Britain's Diary, J Roberts
