THE NEW-ENGLAND CALLENDAR: OR ALMANACK, FOR THE YEAR OF OUR LORD, 1793... BY RICHARD ASTROLOGER.

Boston: Printed and sold by Nathaniel Coverly, by the gross, or single dozen, [1792?]. [24] pp, as issued. Title page woodcut, stitched, toned and lightly worn. Good+. Ownership signature of Elisha Ware.

The almanac prints a list of "Roads from Boston to the Southward and Eastward, with the names of the Innholders." With a few exceptions, this Almanac is "Identical in content and typography with Coverly's 1793 almanacs under the same title having as authors 'Isaac Bickerstaffe' and 'Abraham Weatherwise'" [NAIP].
The last of several Epitaphs is "On a Lawyer": 'God works wonders now and then./ Here lies a Lawyer, an honest man.'
