Fine Bindings, Genealogy, Politics - Quantity: 1 - Book

First edition for this rare almanac published during the reign of Louis-Philippe (1842), established in a romantic binding in full flamed sheepskin, smooth spine, title on piece in green leather, repeated golden finial and golden threads, marbled edges. Friction of use, first jaw split at the foot of about 8 cm, 3 corners a little blunt, head cap a little damaged. Impeccable interior.

The Royal Almanac is a directory of the French administration, founded in 1683 by the bookseller Laurent d'Houry, published under this title from 1700 to 1792, then under various titles (Imperial Directory, etc.) from 1793 to 1919.

He presented each year, in the official order of precedence, the list of the members of the royal family of France, the princes of the blood, and the principal bodies of the kingdom: great officers of the Crown, members of the high clergy, abbots of the great abbeys (with the income of each abbey), marshals of France, colonels and general officers, ambassadors and consuls of France, presidents of the main jurisdictions, councilors of state, bankers, etc.

Despite its unattractive nature, due to the fact that it was a series of nominal lists, it enjoyed wide distribution among a readership mainly made up of financiers, politicians and all those who had an interest. to know the administrative organization of France.
