Serendipity Sunday - The Year Book

While looking for information on a friend's ancestor, I found this book. 
The title says it all...

"The Year Book of Daily Recreation and Information; concerning remarkable men and manners, times and seasons, solemnities and merry-makings, antiquities and novelties, on the plan of the Everyday Book and Table Book, OR Everlasting Calendar of Popular Amusements, Sports, Pastimes, Ceremonies, Customs and Events, incident to each of the three hundred sixty-five days in Past and Present Times; forming a Complete History of the Year; and a Perpetual Key to the Almanac".  -by William Hone - Published in London, 1838


You can find it here.
There are other years here.
