The editions for 1796, 1809, 1813, 1815--16, 1819--24, 1826--29, 1831--33. Imprint of later editions varies. The Royal Kalendar was first published in 1767 by J. Almon, who was succeeded by J. Debrett in 1782, and later by J. Stockdale, William Stockdale, and others. From 1814 the title reads The Royal Kalendar and court and city register; in the subtitle 'the Colonies' replaces 'America' from 1819. At the foot of the imprint are prices for the work 'bound, without, and ... with, an Almanac', i.e. Rider's British Merlin (q.v.); see copy notes below. ESTC t45347 (1796 ed.).

Copy Notes The edition for 1815 is wanting the title-page. All but the edition for 1813 are bound as issued with the copies for the respective years of Rider's British Merlin (q.v.), which is arbitrarily bound to precede or follow the Royal Kalendar, or inserted after the preliminaries in the volumes for 1796, 1809, 1816, 1818--19, 1824 and 1833. The edition for 1809 (printed for J. Stockdale) is additionally bound with Stockdale's New companion to the London and Royal Calendars for 1809 (q.v.). Some volumes inscribed in ink on the first free-endpaper: 1809: John Soane / Chelsea Hospital / 1809; 1813: John Soane; 1815 (in a fine hand): John Soane / L:I:F: / 1815; 1816: John Soane / 6 Jan: 1816; 1818: John Soane / Jany: 1818; 1819: John Soane / Decr: 1818.
