1818 German-American Almanac with Moon Cycles

1818 German-American Almanac with Moon Cycles


Unusual German-American Almanac from 1818, printed in Pennsylvania.

Nautical and agricultural-themed cover illustrations + beautiful imagery of the moon cycles inside. Also includes a portrait of a man named Heinrich Jenkins, who apparently lived to the ripe old age of 169! Can’t find much info on him on Google, so I suppose his legacy was lost to time at some point…

Condition: The book is in pretty rough shape, but the binding holds (aside from the front page which is partially detached); lots of staining throughout + curled and torn page edges. Still an interesting piece of early American history and the colors are lovely.
