Wiener Kalendar auf das Jahr 1810
Vienna: Georg Müller, 1810. (34)ff. Illustrated with engraved frontispiece and twelve hand-colored plates. This early 19th-century Viennese finger almanac is printed in two colors throughout and features a deluxe binding of embroidered silk. The twelve engraved plates have aphoristic text below the images, each of which is delicately colored. Both covers on the white silk binding, uncommon in this format, have four feathers formed of silver thread and pink and gold sequins radiating out from a circular device embroidered in green sequins and gold thread. A thin gold thread with gold sequins forms the border. The spine decoration is a leafy vine comprised of silver thread and sequins. An original mirror is set into the front pastedown, and the whole is enclosed in a contemporary pull-off case of gilt-decorated polished red morocco. Several sequins missing and very light soiling to covers, mirror is silvered, else a fine example. (2 3/4 by 1 1/8; 70x28mm).
