About this Item

Stitched together with modern thread. Consists of 44 pages plus cover with ornate printers device and text on the verso of the cover. Evans ascribes this almanac to Ezra Gleason but modern scholarship suggests this was the work of Samuel Stearns (see Australian Public Library catalog information). Of note in this work is an early printing of the Massachusetts Bill of Rights and a printing of John Dod's well known Sermon on Malt, a text celebrating beer and ale originally published in England in the 1600's. Also included are the usual astronomical predictions for the year 1786 and a table of principle roads on the continent in and around Boston. In POOR condition with heavy tattering to the cover page and heavy loss around the extremities of that page. The bottom inch of the next page is missing, apparently trimmed, with no loss of text. A few other pages suffer from minor losses but nothing that affects the text. The rag paper is browned and somewhat darkened with uneven dampstaining throughout, again not affecting readability. A few very faint notations present in ink in the margins of a few pages. Front cover barely attached. The rest of the almanac is solid and complete. Overall heavy wear to this almanac, in POOR condition. Photos available upon request. Bookseller Inventory # 001268
