When I entered service that was the only "Employee Manual" available at my Agency. There was an old Union Handbook from 1993, with stains from 1993, and it read like legislation.  Did others get a FREE Almanac when they started in service? It provided more info than the Government ever did?

While I did not receive a Federal Employees Almanac when I started civil service in 1967, I soon became familiar with the publication and ordered one every 2 to 3 years, as a ready reference. One never knew when an issue would arise or a question would be asked; the Almanac could be counted on as a quick and reliable source of accurate, timely information.  As you included in your posting, they can still be ordered from Federal Employees News Digest, for those interested in a handy resource for today's Feds.

For a few years during my career, the command bought almanacs  for management.

As a supervisor I made sure each of my 22 employees received a copy of Federal Employees Almanac when hired, later I ordered a wire bound copy for each site, and a CD version was available on our shared drive.
 
I must admit I got well researched questions from my employees.
