Tylden's Almanac: The Chapbook of a Royalist in the Restoration
Keywords:English history, English Restoration
AbstractAmong Rutgers' extensive holding of almanacs is one of particular interest printed in 1663. But it is not so much the content of the almanac that is interesting but for the jottings of the owner of it in the almanac. The owner, "Willm Tylden" used the endpapers to copy down a variety of poems, ballads, epitaphs, epigraphs, and household accounts. His jottings make this old almanac a fascinating reflection of the turbulent years just after the Restoration, as well as a mirror of one man's ardent royalist sympathies and somewhat libertine tastes.
