    Important 1790 New England Almanac, Featuring The First -- And Only -- Jugate Of George Washington And John Adams
    Bickerstaff's Boston Almanac, Or, Federal Calendar, for 1790, Second After Leap-Year; and Fourteenth of Independence. Great cover woodcut shows the 1st President and V.P. under a sort of canopy/arch, decked in patriotic bunting, with eagle at top. Below: "Printed by E. Russell, next Liberty-Pole: Where may be had cheap to Traveling-traders, etc., the Bloody Register No. 4." Great imagery and founding-era flavor. To our knowledge this is the only manufactured item, in any category, which presents a jugate of Washington and Adams. Our inquiries have turned up only two other known copies. Except for some typical minor edge roughness, cover is in excellent display condition, as are the interior pages, some of which are extensively annotated. Page two carries a poem praising Gen. Washington, "Composed in 1782, but never before published." Back cover is missing. Pages were never bound, but were loosely tied together through punch holes in left margin (ribbon which tied them now absent). An important early artifact with much charm and display appeal. 4 1/4" x 7".

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
