Details

Genre/Form: Almanacs
Document Type: Book
All Authors / Contributors: Nathan Daboll; Nehemiah Strong
OCLC Number: 79411551
Notes: The eclipse predictions are identical, except for a typographical error, with those found in the New England almanack and gentlemen and ladies diary for 1786 (New London), calculated by Nathan Daboll under the pseudonym of Edmund Freebetter. The contents of the title page, except for the meridian, author statement, and imprint, duplicate those of Freebetter.
The calendar pages contain scarcely any resemblances to Freebetter. Most of their astronomical notes (chiefly aspects), but not their calculations, duplicate those in Nehemiah Strong's almanac for the same year and meridian, An astronomical ephemeris, calendar, or almanack (Hartford).
Advertised in the American Mercury, Hartford, Oct. 24, 1785.
Signatures: [A]⁶ B⁶.
Description: [24] p. ; 16 cm. (12mo)
Responsibility: By Isaac Bickerstaff.
