Notes

Entered by Evans under the publishers, Thomas and John Fleet, who are named in the 1789, 1791, and 1794-96 issues as editors of the Register.

Advertised in the Independent chronicle, Boston, Nov. 30, 1786, as "Fleet's Massachusetts register and pocket almanack." Subsequent issues for the years 1788-1793 are entitled Fleet's pocket almanack.

The almanac was apparently calculated by Nathanael Low. The eclipse predictions and notes are identical with those in his An astronomical diary or almanack for 1787, also published by Fleet. The calendar page calculations are also identical for the most part, but with some slight variations.

Signatures throughout: 1787.

"Declaration of American independence ..."--p. [1-6], 1st count.

Microform version available in the Readex Early American Imprints series.
