Author: ALMANAC. ABERDEEN.
Title: The New Aberdeen Almanac and Northern Supplement to Oliver & Boyd's Edinburgh Almanac for 1838: Comprising Lists connected with the City of Aberdeen, and the Counties of Aberdeen, Banff, and Kincardine.
Description: Aberdeen: Prepared and Published by Lewis Smith & Peter Gray..., . FIRST AND ONLY EDITION. 12mo (in 6s), 146 x 88 mms., pp. [ii], 144, 24, original printed green boards (rubbed and slightly soiled), red roan (rubbed and a little worn), but a good copy with the contemporary autograph "Wm Burnet Craigie/ Linton/ 1838" on the recto of the front free end-paper. The twenty-four pages at the end contain the publishers' announcement and adverts. This would appear to be their first venture at an Aberdeen almanac; "The Publishers of the New Aberdeen Almanac are not unaware of the fact that there is yet ample room in it for still farther improvement. But they beg their fellow-citizens to receive with indulgence this, the first attempt at improvement, where they conceived improvement was loudly called for." Uncommon: OCLC locates a copy in Aberdeen University Library.
