Details

Genre/Form: Almanacs
Document Type: Book
All Authors / Contributors: Benjamin West; Nathan Daboll
OCLC Number: 71190499
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 calendar pages are apparently the work of Nathan Daboll. The calculations are identical, and the astronomical and horological notes frequently so, with those in The New-England almanack for 1781 (New London), calculated by Daboll under the pseudonym of Edmund Freebetter.
Advertised in the Norwich packet, Oct. 10, 1780.
Parentheses substituted for square brackets in imprint transcription.
2 leaves missing.
Description: [20] p. ; 17 cm.
