Notes

By William Collom. The calculations and astronomical notes on the calendar pages are identical with those in Bailey's Rittenhouse almanac and Bioren's town and country almanac for 1813, both printed at Philadelphia and calculated by Collom. A few of Collom's notes are omitted.

An exception occurs on the first January calendar page, where the astronomical notes (third column) and the clock equations (sixth column) are those found in the Philadelphia almanacs calculated by Joshua Sharp for this year. Sharp's work is substituted for part of Collom's in the 1814 and 1816 issues as well.

But in Poor Will's pocket almanack for 1813, also published by Crukshank, whose calendar pages are otherwise an abridgment of those in Poor Will's almanack, the January astronomical notes like the rest are the work of Collom as seen in Bailey's and Bioren's, with a few omissions.

The Anatomy is the only illustration.

"Books for sale by J. Crukshank."--p. [46-48].
