PEOPLE'S ALMANAC. 1835. VOL. I. NO. 2.

Boston: Published by Charles Ellms, Agent. Sold by John Marsh, [1834]. 47, [1] pp. Stitched, with illustrated title page captioned, 'Dangerous Attempt to Destroy a Hawk's Nest.' Last page a full-page woodcut captioned, 'The Dead Elephant--- A Scene in India.' Profusely illustrated, lightly foxed, untrimmed. Very Good.

An attractive almanac, with many full-page and in-text woodcuts and accompanying explanatory text. A New York edition and another Boston edition were also printed, apparently identical except for the imprints. The almanac includes 'An Account of Nahant', with an illustration of the Indian 'Black William Selling Nahant to Mr. Thomas Dexter, for a suit of clothes, in 1630.' A double-page woodcut is printed of a 'Disastrous Attempt to Ascend Mount Blanc.' Other illustrations, with text, are offered from all over the world: a 'View of a Chinese Floating Town', a 'Newfoundland Dog', a 'Cashmere Goat', and much else.
