"Richard Saunders" is a pseudonym.
The calculator was Abraham Shoemaker. The calculations and astronomical notes on the calendar pages are identical with those in the New Jersey and Pennsylvania almanac for 1800 (Trenton), by Shoemaker. There are fewer columns of calculations, and a few notes are omitted, with many others added for the length of day. Shoemaker's eclipse predictions are repeated on pages [30].
The Anatomy is the only illustration.
