The Ceylon Almanac and Annual Register for the Year of Our Lord, 1862
First edition. Uncommon with COPAC showing runs inevitably at BL, and also at SOAS, and Cambridge, but otherwise just a single volume in the National Archives. A useful digest of local information for the island; weights and measures; rates of pay; directories of the civil, religious, naval and military authorities; routes; shipping intelligence; and so forth.
