Poor Richard Jr's Almanack 1907

This book includes a pithy witticism for each day of the year. There is no entry for February 29th.

The sayings in this book came from Poor Richard Jr's Philosophy Department previously published in the Saturday Evening Post. They were written by Reginald Wright Kauffman.

Here is an example page:


This book was published in both board covers (50 cents) and ooze calf ($1.00). The board cover volumes have been seen with two covers that have the same illustration but slightly different coloring. The ooze calf book originally came within a labeled box.

I believe that the board book that has the yellow shutters is the earlier one but I have no absolute proof. Both board books have identical text in 126 pages and are 5.25 x 4.
