[Aberdeen]. 6 yearly issues, (1799, 8pp; 1800, 8pp; 1801, 8pp; 1802, 8pp; 1806, 12pp; 1808, 12pp.), stitched as issued, browning and spotting as a result of the rather poor quality paper, corners worn with some loss but not to text, one or two small tears (the 1802 issue rather more so). By their very nature, these ephemeral almanacs are very rare; they were intended for issue within the year of printing and then to be thrown away. Printed on poor quality paper, they are susceptible to browning and general wear as is the case with these. Contents include: Geographical description of the world; dimensions of Scotland, England, and Ireland; a very useful table for calculating servants' wages, etc.
