Form/Genre:
Almanacs -- Connecticut -- 1795.
Place of Publication:
United States Connecticut New Haven.
Notes:
The title pages of Strong's almanacs for 1806 and 1807 published at New Haven identify Strong as the author of those formerly issued under the pseudonym of Hosea Stafford.
In comparison with Strong's The Connecticut, Massachusetts, New-York, and Vermont almanack for 1795 (Litchfield), the astronomical notes and the wording of the eclipse predictions are identical, and the calculations throughout are identical in part and in part vary slightly, reflecting the difference in meridian. "Stafford" includes Strong's characteristic page entitled "Variation of sun and clock."
Advertised in the Connecticut journal, New Haven, Nov. 6, 1794.
The Anatomy is the only illustration.
