  • Part of the library digital collection of Early American Imprints, Series II: Shaw-Shoemaker, 1801-1819
  • At head of title: (No. V.)
  • The issue for 1806 is entitled Poor Richard's genuine New-England almanack. Another printing of the 1807 issue, and the issue for 1808, are entitled Poor Richard's Franklin almanac
  • The author of this series of almanacs was probably their publisher, Andrew Newell. In the pamphlet entitled Darkness at noon, or The great solar eclipse of the 16th of June, 1806, by an inhabitant of Boston (Boston: D. Carlisle & A. Newell, 1806), the calculations of the eclipse and some passages concerning it correspond to those in the extensive discussion of the eclipse in the almanac for 1806, entitled Poor Richard's genuine New-England almanack. The two subsequent almanacs in the series, for 1807 and 1808, carry the phrase "Calculated by an inhabitant of Boston" on their title pages. Newell, to whom Darkness at noon has been attributed, began printing in 1801 and died in 1808; the Poor Richard almanac series is coterminous with these dates
  • The preface to Darkness at noon states that this pamphlet on the eclipse and on eclipses generally was suggested to its author by an acquaintance, who must therefore have known him as an astronomical writer. His suggestion may have been prompted by the eclipse paragraphs in the 1806 almanac if both works are by the same hand. Newell's obituary in the Columbian centinel, Feb. 10, 1808, describes him as "A young man possessing a philosophical, active, and vigorous mind ... He furnished the best and most accurate account of the last great solar eclipse."
  • Advertised in the Independent chronicle, Boston, Oct. 9, 1806
  • Title vignette (zodiac) with legend
