THE FOOLISH ALMANAC; For the Year of 1906 A.D....

Bostoin: John W. Luce and Company, 1905. 1st Edition. Hardcover. A satirical almanac produced by the staff of the John W. Luce publishing company. The staff takes a kitchen sink approach: zodiac readings, gardening hints, bios of the rich and famous like Heddy Green and Teddy Roosevelt. Sophisticated illustrations. Cover pastedown on green, rough-weave patterned cloth. Printed at The Plimpton Press. Provenance is the Choate estate in Amesbury MA with a period Home Library book plate for J. T. Choate of Amesbury on the upper left corner of the front pastedown, which has entries for date acquired, volume number and price (75 cents!). The Choate family figures prominently in the history of the towns on the north shore of Boston: many features of the town of Amesbury still bear the Choate name. Very Good. Item #012520
