Description Boston: : Printed and sold by T. & J. Fleet, at the Bible and Heart in Cornhill., [1796] 
167 [i.e., 168] p. ; 14 cm. (12mo) 
Series

Early American imprints. Series I, Evans (1639-1800); no. 30430.

Notes

Previous issues for 1794-96 are entitled: A Pocket almanack ... Subsequent issues for 1798-1800 are entitled: Fleets' register and pocket almanack.

As with the previous issues in the series, the almanac is evidently calculated by Nathanael Low. The eclipse notes on p. 4 are identical, except for some condensation, with those in his An astronomical diary or almanack for 1797, also published by Fleet. The calculations on the calendar pages are also identical except for some slight variations of 1 minute, and the weather predictions tend to correspond.

Advertised in the Boston gazette, Nov. 28, 1796.

Error in paging: page number 76 repeated.

Microform version available in the Readex Early American Imprints series.
