An Almanack for the Year of our Lord God MDCCC

Annuals and serials can be confusing to look up on WorldCat, but if I’m not mistaken, this is only listed in an electronic version put out by the Gale Group.  I believe that they may have digitized a copy owned by the British Library.  Great for access, but not quite the same.  This beautiful material object calls out to be handled.
