Notes:
The pseudonym Andrew Aguecheek is taken from the character in Shakespeare's Twelfth night.
The actual calculator was John Tobler. The calculations and astronomical notes on the calendar pages, as well as the eclipse predictions on p. [5], are identical throughout with those in his Pennsylvania town and country-man's almanack for 1768 (Wilmington).
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.
In some copies gathering C is missigned with the date 1767.
Advertised in the Pennsylvania gazette, Philadelphia, Oct. 22, 1767.
The Anatomy is the only illustration.
