Abstract. Based on the most recent information about the old books from Cluj, we are aware of a number of sixty-two almanacs printed in this town during the 17th century. Although the look and content of these almanacs did not change significantly during these years, almost each printer tried to include something new in order to facilitate a better selling of the product. The detailed presentation of the content of these books and the highlighting of the different changes that occurred in some of the almanacs printed in Cluj can provide new information about this genre.
