Benjamin West; John Trumbull
|Notes:||Attributed to Benjamin West by Evans and in Bates, A.C. "Check list of Connecticut almanacs, 1709-1850." Proceedings of the American Antiquarian Society, n.s. v. 24 (1914): 102, 129. But the apparent calculator is Nathan Daboll. The eclipse predictions (though without the accompanying illustrations) and the calculations for the moon are identical with those in The New England almanack and gentlemen & ladies diary for 1790 (New London), calculated by Daboll under the pseudonym of Edmund Freebetter. The astronomical and horological notes on the calendar pages duplicate those in Freebetter, except that the latter are more numerous. The calculations for the sun and tides vary to a degree reflecting the difference in meridian between New London and Norwich.
Advertised in the Norwich packet, Oct. 23, 1789.
