Chambers Book of Days was written by the Scottish author Robert Chambers and first published in 1864. The Book of Days was Robert Chambers' last publication, and perhaps his most elaborate. It was a huge collection of short, largely factual pieces which today would generally be bracketed as "trivia" but very interesting trivia. The formula has been much repeated.

If you want to get information on some really far-fetched special days, this is the book for you.

Just what I needed. If you want to get information on some really far-fetched special days, this is the book for you.

Yet another mostly American holiday book. Lots of info is not quite accurate (ie - Bird Day, April 9 - is actually International Migratory Bird Day and should be on May 10 (according to the National Audubon Society!)) Cute to look up your birthday but otherwise a waste of $$
