|Notes:||Half-title: Anderson improved.
The prefaces to "Anderson's" almanacs for 1772-1773 indicate that he was a head of family in Newport or its vicinity who chose not to make his identity known. No family named Anderson is listed in the Rhode Island census of 1774, and no John Anderson is found in the Rhode Island vital records for the period. The calculations in the revived Anderson almanac for 1780 were by Benjamin West. Cf. Alden, p. 293, and Chapin, H.M. "Check list of Rhode Island almanacs." Proceedings of the American Antiquarian Society, n.s. v. 25 (1915): 26 and 38.
Two states noted. One ends on p.  with "(VII.) Road from Newport, to East-Hoosuck, and Dartmouth College." The other ends on p.  with "(VIII.) Road from Newport to Dartmouth College."
Advertised in the Newport Mercury, Oct. 11, 1773, as "Now in the press, will be published in good season" and on Nov. 22, as "Just published."
