London: W. Foulsham & Co., 1900-1910. First Editions. Original wrappers. RAPHAEL'S ALMANACS For 1901,1902, 1906, 1909, 1910 and 1911. Six Issues, each in its original printed wrappers. Approx 125 pp each. Each issue has A LARGE HIEROGLYPHIC, a folding plate depicting prophesized events for the coming year, the Hieroglphics for 1910 and 1911 are in colour. The 1911 issue has a stamp from the "OCCULT BOOK CO, 213 Mercantile Place, Books Bought and Sold" on the rear wrapper. We assume that this is Mercantile Place, operational from 1906 to 1923 in Los Angeles (we bought these in LA), but we have never heard of this bookshop before. Period ads, etc. Fragile wrappers generally chipped and worn, 1901, 1906 and 1909 lacking the rear wrapper, generally sound copies, albeit fragile. Fairly Good. Item #310778
¶ While a general almanac, these also give weather predictions and predictions for each day of the coming year.
