Benjamin West; Nathan Daboll
|Notes:||Attributed to Benjamin West in Nichols, C.L. "Notes on the almanacs of Massachusetts" Proceedings of the American Antiquarian Society, n.s. v. 22 (1912): 34-35; and the Dictionary of American biography. However, the eclipse notes, calculations, and notes on the calendar pages do not resemble those in West's North-American calendar for 1783 (Providence), whereas they contain frequent correspondences or similarities with Nathan Daboll's The New-England almanack and gentleman's and lady's diary for the same year (published at New London under the pseudonym of Edmund Freebetter), such as to suggest a common authorship.
Edition statement transposed from head of title. Parentheses substituted for square brackets enclosing edition statement.
Pages [7-21] contain a final installment of the poem "American invincible" issued separately by Russell in 1779. Sections appeared previously in Bickerstaff's Boston almanack for 1779 (Russell), Russell's American almanack for 1780, 1781, and 1782, and Bickerstaff's Boston almanack (Russell) for 1782. The present installment concludes: "End of Book I. To be continued," but no more appeared in the succeeding almanacs published by Russell.
