Ye Annapolis Almanac, Being an Illustrated Compendium of Historical, Literary, Meteorological and Apocryphal Information

(s.l.): (s.n.), [c.1913]. Hardcover. Duodecimo. [51 ] pages. Good. Bound in brown paper over boards with illustration printed in two colors on upper board. A few minor extremity rubs and wear, joints a little tender, small chip along fore edge of upper board. Protected with a mylar jacket.

Humorous collection of both historic illustrations and Stevens' own drawings, accompany this spoof of a classic American almanac. Part of January's entry: "1/1/4004 B. C. Annapolis Created; 1/1/4004 B. C. Rest of Maryland; 1/3/4004 B. C. Out of scraps left over, remainder of the planet. " And so on--with many references to the Navy and Naval Academy, where Stevens was an English professor.
