1863 Maine - FARMERíS ALMANAC

NOTICE

********NOW OPERATING FROM OUR NEW HEADQUARTERS ********



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

Manufacturer: Masters, Smith & Co.

All complete even to the front and back covers, this original 1863 Maine Farmerís Almanac by Daniel Robinson was printed by Masters, Smith & Co. of Hallowell, Maine. No exception to the popular format of the time, this example offers the typical weather prognostications, phases of the moon, and a variety of good advice that made it a staple of the Maine farmer, fisherman, lumberman, et al. The Maine Farmerís Almanac offered a welcome piece of home and source of recreational reading when sent to a soldier in the field. A treasure trove of period charm with neat period illustrations, Civil War enthusiasts will be pleased to note a roster of top government officials headed by Abraham Lincoln as President, followed by Maineís own Hannibal Hamlin as Lincolnís VP. Published in wraps these soft bound almanacs typically saw heavy use then were cast aside at the end of the year leaving few examples for todayís collector / historian. Well worn with lots of eye appeal in the form of tattered edges and rounded corners from period use but with no missing or loose pages this is a neat display item to augment any period collection. (note: Daniel Robinson edited the Maine Farmerís Almanac for 42 years from 1822 through 1864 passing away at 90 years of age.)
