CAPE ALMANAC SERIES:

The long series of annual volumes commonly known as the Cape Almanacs began in the year 1801 with the appearance of the handwritten African Court Calendar, described as "printed at the Government Press", although no printed copy is known. The African Kalendar for 1802, by Harry Harwood Smith, one of the Cape's earliest printers, followed. None is known for year 1803, but after the advent of the Batavian Republic the Almanak voor de Kaap de Goede Hoop, 1804, was published.

In 1805 and 1806 the title became Lyst van alle Collegien and then with the Second British Occupation, reverted in 1807 to African Court Calendar, a title which continued until 1826. In 1827 it became the South African Almanack and Directory and in 1828 was taken over by George Greig, proprietor of the South African Commercial Advertiser. The title varied thereafter though for many years from 1840 it was published as the Cape of Good Hope Almanac and Annual Register and compiled by B.J.van de Sandt.
