A fine copy of this delightful Almanach. Only 1000 copies were printed and this is numbered 68. There is no copy recorded on the Bibliotheque Nationale online catalogue, though it does have the Almanach for the second and final year, 1922. The illustrations are by Edouard Halouze and include the four plates of the seasons and a series of advertisements for the smartest of shops, including Cartier, and other places of entertainment or indulgence.
