Title: Whats the word for it...
Post by: Manotea on January 30, 2020, 01:22:13 pm
I believe there is a rather antiquated and little used word to describe an annual publication full of facts and figures about the year to come but for the life of me I cannot think what it is though I suspect it starts with an E.

The closest I've got is Gazette but that's not it...

Name that word!

I would have said that, but starting with an e?

Ephemeris or ephemerides?

Old Moore's Almanac was the one always for sale at my local newsagent when I were a lad.
