Providence: John Carter, [1784].

24pp. 8vo. Stitched. Evans 18880; Alden, J.E. Rhode Island imprints, 1727-1800, 976; Drake, M. Almanacs of the United States, 12880; ESTC W22717. Item #319593

Erroneously attributed by Evans to Benjamin West. The actual calculator appears to be Nathan Daboll. The frequent identity or similarity of the astronomical and horological notes on the calendar pages with those in The New England almanack and gentlemen and ladies diary for 1785 (New London), calculated by Daboll under the pseudonym of Edmund Freebetter, indicates a common authorship.

Under the heading "A sure and easy Method to discharge the National Debt" on page 17, which includes references to Buell's Map of the United States, it is suggested to sell western lands to offset the debt.
