    The vogue for small format almanacs, often called Étrennes (New Year gifts), began rather innocently in France in the early eighteenth century, before exploding into a specialized printing and publishing industry that spread to neighboring countries and lasted well into the nineteenth century. Often produced by stationer-binders rather than traditional printer-publishers, these almanacs were usually printed in very small formats, 24mo or 32mo. The originally practical purpose of the almanac came to be eclipsed in favor of the frivolous pleasures of pretty bindings and light-hearted illustrations, although many almanacs in name only still included yearly calendars. Herewith a small selection.

    Please find herewith our first e-catalogue for 2015. It contains 27 items from the 15th century to 1850, largely recent acquisitions. The highlights are two sixteenth-century German illustrated vernacular story collections, both legendary rarities, and a splendid copy of the first edition of Wendel Dietterlin’s earliest architectural design books, which foreshadowed surrealism and perspective-bending artists like Escher.
    Also in the catalogue are a board game for determining one’s career path for 19th-century teenagers; a thieving bibliophile’s magnum opus on world languages, in a presentation copy to the French royal pretender; a 16th-century astrology manual in a contemporary dyed vellum flap (or “wallet”) binding; a guide to relics with advice on how to contemplate them; a pair of prostitutes’ laments on improved lighting in Paris streets; a typological treatise containing engraved models for stained glass; and other oddities of which you will find few if any copies elsewhere, either in OCLC, in Via Libri, or in digitized formats.
