FIRST EDITION. Trimmed close, without A1 (half title or initial blank). Disbound. 48pp. Including weather forecasts for every day of 1838, the Weather Almanac, which ran to 45 editions, catapulted Murphy into meteorological fame. His entry for January 20, ?prob. lowest deg. of winter temp.? proved correct as temperatures fell to minus fourteen degrees. An instant celebrity, the winter became known as ?Murphy?s Winter? and a one act play, ?Murphy?s Weather Almanac? was performed at Sadler?s Wells. Bookseller Inventory #
