Material Type: Document, Internet resource
Document Type: Internet Resource, Computer File
All Authors / Contributors: Nathan Daboll; Benjamin West
OCLC Number: 62833157
Notes: "Isaac Bickerstaff" is a common pseudonym in almanacs.
Erroneously attributed by Evans to Benjamin West. The actual calculator was Nathan Daboll. The eclipse predictions, and the astronomical and horological notes on the calendar pages, are nearly identical with those in his New England almanac and gentlemen and ladies' diariy for 1798 (New London). The calculations for the moon are identical throughout. The others vary to a degree reflecting the difference in meridian between New London and Providence.
West and Carter, the publisher, severed relations with the 1781 issue. West's almanac was published thereafter at Providence by Bennett Wheeler as the North American calendar, while Carter continued the New England almanack over the Bickerstaff pseudonym, with which West is often identified. Cf. Chapin, H.M. "Check list of Rhode Island almanacs, 1643-1850." Proceedings of the American Antiquarian Society, n.s. v. 25 (1915): 24-26.
Advertised in the Providence gazette, Oct. 28, 1797.
Parentheses substituted for square brackets in imprint transcription.
The Anatomy is the only illustration.
Description: 1 online resource ([24] pages) : illustrations
Responsibility: by Isaac Bickerstaff, Esq ; philom.
