Notes: Advertised in the Boston gazette Sept. 21, 1772.
The three cuts, on p. [1-3], are attributed to Paul Revere in C.S. Brigham's Paul Revere's engravings, 1954, p. 136. However, the cut of the Anatomy is found earlier in Thomas Robie's An almanac of the coelestial motions, aspects and eclipses for 1716 (Boston : T. Fleet and T. Crump). The appearances in the Stearns and Robie almanacs are identical line for line. The Robie cut is in turn a copy of that which appeared in John Tully's almanacs for 1693-1697 (Boston : Benjamin Harris, Bartholomew Green and John Allen) and which continued in use in the almanacs printed by Green as late as 1723, appearing finally in Nathaniel Whittemore's 1724 almanac printed by Allen. the Robie version (in which the spelling "Pisses" is corrected to Pisces) was last used in Nathaniel Low's An astronomical diary or almanac for 1779 (Boston : J. Gill and T. & J. Fleet). The cut thus appears to have been in the Fleets' possession and use for at least 63 years. (Brigham, incidentally, omits the Fleets when citing the imprint of Stearns' almanac, giving only Edes & Gill.).
Description: 1 online resource ([24] p.) : ill.
Responsibility: by Samuel Stearns. A student in the mathematicks and physick.
