A lovely little book by Victorian artist and writer Kate Greenaway (1846-1901).  Pages list monthly holidays, plus poems for each season.  Each page illustrated in Greenaway's distinctive style, with ruled borders. 

Engraved and printed by Edmund Evans, a woodblock engraver and printer.  In 1879, Greenaway and Evans collaborated on the publication of Under the Window, a best seller that established Greenaway's reputation as an artist.  The two remained collaborators, and the Almanack is an example of their partnership.  

Routledge published this Almanack from 1883-1895.
