The calculator was William Waring. The calculations and astronomical notes on the calendar pages are practically identical with those in Poor Will's almanack for 1789 (Philadelphia), by Waring. There are fewer columns of calculations, a few notes are added or omitted, and the times for the sun are adjusted slightly in April-July. Waring's mathematical predictions for the eclipses, comet, and transit of Mercury are duplicated on p. [32].
Advertised in the Pennsylvania gazette, Philadelphia, Nov. 26, 1788.
The Anatomy is the only illustration.
