Gotha: Justus Perthes, 1865. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. A Near Fine copy of the first edition, first printing in the Publisher's original decorative green cloth with the spine lettering in gilt, in a worn, about Very Good, dust jacket, with several images of noteworthy persons of the day. Almanach de Gotha was an annual genealogical, diplomatic, and statistical summary of European royalty, nobility, and key officials and agencies. It was published in French in Gotha, Germany. The first Almanach de Gotha was published in 1764, and the last was published in 1944. Copies are usually found worn, often significantly so. Copies in the dust jacket are quite scarce indeed. Notably, the dust jacket is priced by way of a sticker with the work's title and price affixed to the jacket's spine at publication, making it the earliest priced dust jacket we ever have seen. [We believe there to have been a very few earlier dated dust jackets from the 1830s, but this jacket is a rare survival and few of those 1830s priced dust jackets will have survived except in some select institutional collections. Furthermore, the addition to a price to the dust jacket was a major step in the evolution of dust jackets as Publishers were gradually adding information -- such as title, author, date, price, and illustration --to book jackets and this is an early example of the addition of information to a dust jacket which previously were either blank or not used at all.] A Near Fine copy in an overall about Very Good and RARE DUST JACKET WITH THE PRICE AFFIXED AND THUS SHOWS A STAGE IN DUST JACKET EVOLUTION. EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE TO RARE. Near fine / very good. Item #3027
