Notes

Advertised in the Columbian centinel, Boston, Nov. 7, 1795, as "Fleet's register." Page 1, preceding the register, contains the copyright notice dated Oct. 23, and includes Nathaniel Low's An astronomical diary or almanack for 1796, also published by Fleet. The notice was printed in the Centinel for Oct. 28. The issue for 1797 is entitled Fleets pocket almanack.

The Pocket almanack was calculated by Nathanael Low. The eclipse page is practically identical with that in his An astronomical diary or almanack for 1796, the calculations on the calendar pages are similarly identical with slight variations, and the weather predictions generally correspond.

Microform version available in the Readex Early American Imprints series.
