Genre/Form: Electronic books
Almanacs
Material Type: Document, Internet resource
Document Type: Internet Resource, Computer File
All Authors / Contributors: Benjamin West; Osgood Carleton; J Plumer
OCLC Number: 62825126
Notes: This almanac is unique in that, as discussed in the preface by "I Bickerstaff," the notes on the calendar pages contain no astronomical calculations or weather predictions, but consist only of a calendar of events. The calculations of rising and setting of the sun and moon, the eclipses, etc. do not tally significantly with those of any known calculator for this year. The prose portion of the almanac includes the last two pages of the topographical description of America by Osgood Carleton, of which the greater part, together with Carleton's calculations, appeared in the issue for the previous year.
The calculations in the present issue bear only slight resemblance to those in the almanac published under Carleton's name for 1790. The general tone of the facetious preface suggests the work of an amateur. It is clearly not that of the professional Benjamin West, to whom the almanac is attributed by Evans and others.
Advertised in the Herald of freedom, Nov. 20, 1789.
"A poem, on Gen. Washington.--Composed in 1782, but never published.--By J. Plumer, a citizen of the world."--Page [3-4].
Description: 1 online resource ([24] pages) : portraits
