I love old books and magazines, the look and feel of the paper, the images and recollections of a previous age.  This book is a German almanac that is bound in sheep's hide.  It was given to me by my father.  Click on each image for a larger view.


It is filled with fashion images, hair styles, recipes, an almanac, calendar, stories, facts about the planets, and other useful information for the well-bred 18th century person.
