Item Price/Item Quantity
3 Early HOSTETTER'S Illustrated Almanacs-1873, 1878, 1884 $60.00

I am offering 3 early issues of "Hostetter's Illustrated United States Almanac" published by Hostetter & Smith, Pittsburgh, Pa. I am selling the issues for 1873, 1878 and 1884. They are generally in Very Good condition--clean, unmarked, no torn or missing pages. The 1873 issue shows some corner wear and corner creases, and some old dampstains. But, for the most part the grouping is remarkably well-preserved!! Almanacs contain wonderful period illustrations and many features articles involving digestion, the bowels and other ailments/health related issues. The Hostetter companies also manufactured Stomach Bitters and other home remedies. Hence, the emphasis upon health related issues in these almanacs. The almanacs measure 5 X 7 7/8, app. 40 pgs each. These are wonderful and these almanacs are quite SCARCE. A few copies can be found on other internet booksites for upwards of $60 EACH!! Contemporary on-demand reprints are available as well, often for upwards of $52 EACH!! I will offer this group of ALL 3 ALMANACS for only $60.00 plus $3.50 S&H in the US. Shipping costs to Canada will be considerably less than the general international rates quoted. Thanks for shopping mellowpagesrarebooks.com
