A wonderful miniature size 1887 "Fick Kalender" printed in Swedish. The 16 page booklet contain the entire 12 months of 1887 with information pertaining to each individual month. The pages measure 1 3/8" in width and 2" in length. The even more amazing aspect of the piece is that it is mounted in a hand-crafted cover, consisting of a blue cloth interior with heavy punched paper front and back covers which have been decorated with delicate cross-stitching designs in shades of blue and tan. The front cover is monogrammed with an "A", probably the initial of the original owner and the back cover show the year "1887". It is in excellent condition with no tears to the printed pages and even though the covers have been bent during their lifetime, they are not broken and are held firm with the cloth lining. Fantastic collectible for Swedish memorabilia, miniature books, folk art cross-stitch collectors or for those of us who enjoy the historic thrill of the unusual discovery.
