Nathan Daboll; Benjamin West
|Notes:||Attributed by Evans to Benjamin West, but the actual calculator was Nathan Daboll. The eclipse predictions, with some minor omissions, duplicate those in The New England almanack and gentlemen & ladies diary for 1790 (New London, Conn.), calculated by Daboll under his pseudonym of Edmund Freebetter. The astronomical and horological notes are identical, though fewer in the present almanac. The calculations for the moon are the same except for a few in January. Those for the sun and tides and in some of the notes vary because of the difference in meridian between New London and Providence.
Another issue has  pages. The first 8 leaves are printed from the same setting of type.
Advertised in the United States chronicle, Providence, Oct. 29, 1789.
The illustration is an eclipse diagram on the title page.
