Almanach Impérial, pour l'année m dccc xiii, présente a s m l'Empereur et Roi
Paris: Chez Testu et Cie, 1813. First edition. 778 [i.e., 978] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Full contemporary crimson straight grain morocco, elaborately gilt extra, spine decorated with bee and predator bird devices, boards stamped with gilt crest device (including Papal cross and a coat of arms), gilt inner dentelles, a.e.g.. Two bookplates on front pastedown, scattered foxing, early ink memoranda on recto of rear free endsheet, early repair to what appears to have been a surface snag to lower board; still, very good, in a handsome binding. Testu acquired (by marriage and payment) the rights to publish this annual Almanac from the heirs of Francois-J.-N. Debure in 1797, but over the following two decades, brought the enterprise to a precarious state, requiring financial participation by others. Founded in 1700 as the ALMANACH ROYAL, it appeared under the title ALMANACH IMPÉRIAL from 1804 - 1813, preserving a substantial record of political and social information, lists of officials and titled individuals (both secular and religious), information on organizations and institutions, as well as more traditional almanac features.
