New-England Almanac

Item #79943

[DABOLL, Nathan]. The New-England Almanac, or Lady's and Gentleman's Diary, for the Year of Our Lord Christ 1784.. By Isaac Bickerstaff. Providence: John Carter, [1783]. 11 leaves. Sewn. Light scattered foxing and toning, lacks final leaf, else very good. Drake 12868. Evans 17795. ESTC W22715. Erroneously attributed by Evans to Benjamin West. The actual calculator appears to be Nathan Daboll. West and Carter, the publisher, severed relations with the 1781 issue. West's almanac was subsequently published in Providence by Bennett Wheeler as the North American Calendar, while Carter continued the New England Almanack over the Bickerstaff pseudonym with which West is often identified.

Price: $100.00
