|Notes:||Attributed to Benjamin West by Evans and others. An advertisement on p.  reads "Osgood Carleton, teacher of mathematicks, near Oliver's-Dock, Boston, teaches the method of finding longitude at sea, by lunar observations .. He likewise continues to teach other branches of education as usual." Carleton, who later published maps, devotes the prose portions of this almanac to topographical descriptions of America and the several states. His preface, signed "Isaac Bickerstaff, Esq.," states that he has issued almanacs for previous years. The first bearing his name is for 1790. The topographical matter is concluded in the issue of this almanac published by Russell for the following year, though the calculations in that issue do not appear to be by Carleton.
