Note
  • Part of the library digital collection of Early American Imprints, Series I: Evans, 1639-1800
  • The pseudonym Andrew Aguecheek is taken from the character in Shakespeare's Twelfth night
  • The calendar pages are based upon the work of John Tobler. The calculations duplicate those in his Pennsylvania town and country-man's almanack for 1769 (Wilmington). The astronomical notes are also duplicated, but with some additions and a few omissions, as well as some misprints. The eclipse predictions (p. [5]) are quite different and by another hand
  • Though the Tobler almanacs issued after his death in 1765 have been attributed to his son John, the publisher's preface to the South Carolina and Georgia almanack for 1765 (Savannah) states that Tobler's calculations had then been completed up to 1800. The later almanacs contain no indication that Tobler Junior is the author
  • Advertised in the Pennsylvania journal, Philadelphia, Oct. 22, 1768
  • The Anatomy is the only illustration
