For your consideration I offer a colorful and complete twelve page calendar with verses to accompany each month.
This calendar was published by White & Allen, which was in N.Y. This was a company that operated for a very short time. From
my research, they went bankrupt in 1890. That is one of the reasons that I'm sure this calendar is pretty scarce. It is dated 1891 but was copyrighted 1889. Apparently, they were able to issue it before the end of 1890. The calendar is on heavy poster board weight stock. It measures 8 3/4 inches by 6 inches. I have pictured six of the twelve pages. This calendar is in very good condition for the age. I can tell the hanging cord looks replaced at some time. The colors are bright and vivid. There are no tears or foxing. The back of the last month shows the usual discoloration from storage over the years. Each page has a related verse at the bottom. For example, February, which pictures ice skating, reads "So bright, so fresh, so delightfully nice,
To skim along on the hard smooth ice. What fun to fly on your skates away, skating so gaily the whole of the day." This is a lovely depiction of gentler days and times. It will be packaged so as not to bend in transit. Check my shop for other items of interest and send an email should you have any questions.Note: Because I have reduced the price I now have to place the item as Vintage rather than Antique, which is really is because of Ruby Lane's rules on pricing antique items.
