With the exception of the Hoch-Deutsch-Americanische Calender, all the almanacs published in Pennsylvania for 1779 contain the same calculations and have most of the same astronomical notes on the calendar pages, and are clearly the work of the same author. (In those published at Lancaster, the calculations for the sun and a few for the bright stars are adjusted slightly in the autumn months.) The only one of these almanacs naming a real person as its calculator is Der Gantz neue verbesserte Nord-Americanische Calender (Lancaster), by David Rittenhouse.Advertised in the Pennsylvania packet, Philadelphia, Oct. 6, 1778.Signatures: [A-D]⁴.The Anatomy is the only illustration.Evans 16050.Hildeburn, C.R.Pennsylvania, 3833.Drake, M.Almanacs, 10068.Microfiche.

Apparently the next publication in French appeared in the spring of 1777, but in a journal actually published in London. How shall we be ever able to pay them? The People heard it, and approved the Doctrine, and immediately practised the contrary, just as if it had been a common Sermon; for the Vendue opened, and they began to buy extravagantly, notwithstanding all his Cautions, and their own Fear of Taxes.
This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. The most unusual, and apparently one of the most popular versions, appeared in 1795.
It consists of the selection and careful arrangement in a connected discourse of approximately one hundred of the aphorisms and maxims contained in the earlier Poor Richard almanacs. Minor issues present such as moderate cracking, inscriptions, inserts, moderate foxing, tanning and thumb marking.
Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. Those have a short Lent, saith Poor Richard, who owe Money to be paid at Easter. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible.
But will serve the adjacent states without any sensible error.
