1 JOHANN [JOHN] G. WINNBERG 1890 - 1894 ORIGINAL ARCHIVE OF FIVE [5] FARMER'S ALMANACS WITH MANUSCRIPT PERSONAL DIARY NOTES, PROFESSIONAL ENTRIES AND FINANCIALS OF ONE SWEDISH APOTHECARY'S IMMIGRATION TO JAMESTOWN NEW YORK USA
JAMESTOWN NEW YORK NY 1890 Good Manuscript 
On offer is a super, original archive of five [5] 1890 through 1894 Farmer's Almanacs with handwritten entries by Swedish immigrant Johann (John) G. Winnberg of Jamestown, New York. The Winnbergs left Sweden in 1890 and settled in Jamestown in 1891. These books are used in brief almost point form diary entries likely of a professional nature in the Almanac portion but the free end papers have more detailed paragraph style entries and appear to contain records of their journey and impressions of their new home in 1890 and 1891 and then the later books have notes and clippings and addresses we believe. They are written in Swedish, for the most part, but you can see the beginnings of a transition to English. John Winnberg owned an apothecary in Jamestown. The almanacs were published by P. A. Norstedt & Söner in Stockholm and Göteborgs. Researchers and historians of the Swedish immigration to America will recognize the uniqueness of this archive. DESCRIPTION: 1890 Hardcover.
