Richard Saunders; John Tobler
|Notes:||"Richard Saunders" is a pseudonym.
The calculations and astronomical notes on the calendar pages are identical with those in The Pennsylvania town and country-man's almanack for 1773, by John Tobler (Wilmington), except that some notes have been added, and the calculations for the sun adjusted by one minute in November and December. A table of eclipse of the satellites of Jupiter has been added after the calendar.
Though the Tobler almanacs issued after his death in 1765 have been attributed to his son John, the publisher's preface to the South Carolina and Georgia almanack for 1765 (Savannah) states that Tobler's calculations had then been completed up to 1800. The later almanacs contain no indication the Tobler Junior is the author.
Advertised in the Pennsylvania gazette, Philadelphia, Sept. 2, 1772.
