[ALMANAC.] Almanach pacifique ou l'Ecole de la vertu, tiré des plus beaux endroits de l'Ecriture sainte. Partis, Janet Foreur. [1793].

24mo (98 x 64mm), pp. 24 of text, with pp. 24 of monthly profit and loss accounts, and twelve hand-coloured engraved plates; contemporary embroidered pale pink silk binding over binder's board; sides with outer frame of a fine silver metal scroll held by zigzagging thread; gilt thread decoration punctuated with multi-coloured sequins surrounding central motif of wheatsheaf on upper board, and a mandolin bow and quiver surmounted by a double heart on lower board; smooth spine, with a little surface wear; coloured Brokatpaper endpapers, salmon taffeta gusseted pocket on lower cover;

A charming near miniature almanac in a well preserved embroidered binding. The almanac is illustrated with twelve brightly hand-coloured engraved plates, accompanying the Bible stories in verse. Particularly impressive is the plate accompanying the story of the Tower of Babel.

The text which includes some printed music also allows room for 24 ruled and headed pages for monthly accounts.

Grand-Carteret 1100 (éd. 1793); OCLC lists Morgan, Huntington, and BL.

About SUSANNE SCHULZ-FALSTER RARE BOOKS

I specialize in printed books and manuscripts in the humanities, with a special emphasis on the quirky, unusual and the beautiful. My stock is particularly strong on the European Enlightenment and the early industrial revolution, its philosophy, impact on commerce and everyday life, technological developments, and view of women.I am also interested in the practical production of books and the distribution texts, and thus offer printer's and engraving manuals, books on copyright laws or censorship, and early library or publisher's catalogues. I issue regular illustrated and fully annotated catalogues and exhibit a major international book fairs.
