Richard Saunders; John Tobler
|Notes:||"Richard Saunders" is a pseudonym.
The calendar pages are based upon the calculations of John Tobler as found in his Pennsylvania town and country-man's almanack for 1774 (Wilmington). The astronomical notes are identical, but with additions and with different notes for the length of day in Poor Richard. The calculations for the sun and moon have been adjusted in part.
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. 29, 1773.
