A.J. White, Limited, 21, Farringdon Road, London, E.C.
Printed pamphlet wrapper, chromolithograph, and one disbound sheet. 12vo, 150 x 95mm, 6 x 3¾".
An Almanac printed for the British settlement at Freetown, Sierra Leone, West Africa. The printed text within, including verso side of disbound sheet, is overwritten by hand in ink in a non-European script. The recto of the sheet ( numbered '5') lists significant historical events for the month of February, and is illustrated with a monk looking at his fishy catch to signify Pisces. Below is a recommendation for 'Seigel's Curative Syrup' by one Joseph Woods, Chemist. According to a pencil note offered with this item, the ink manuscript is a local charm, to be recited for the purpose of curing the sick. A truly unique piece of ephemera.
