Van Diemen’s Land Pocket Almanack: 1824
Note on British Library holdings of Bent almanacs: In 1897 the British Museum acquired what appears to have been a full set from the collection of M.C. Scott. The volumes for 1825 to 1830, while still listed in the British Library’s catalogue, cannot currently be found. A note from the Keeper of Prints at the British Museum in 1959 (quoted by Clifford Craig in ‘Engravers of Van Diemen’s Land’) states that the Hobart Town annuals and almanacs of James Ross were destroyed during World War 2, so it is possible the Bent volumes shared the same fate.
