Introduction

Whitaker's Almanacks have been published at the end of each year since 1868 and contain a wealth of information on UK & world politics and government statistics, astronomy, literature, Nobel prizes, religion, sport, weights & measures and significant events during the past year.

This site is compiled and maintained by Michael & Gloria Turner. We have built up a large collection of these books which gives an insight to world history over the years, our earliest example being 1877. We also have a large number of duplicates for sale.
