THE NORTH-AMERICAN CALENDAR: OR, THE RHODE-ISLAND ALMANACK, FOR THE YEAR OF OUR LORD CHRIST 1787... THE ELEVENTH OF AMERICAN INDEPENDENCE.

Providence: Printed by Bennett Wheeler, and sold at his Office... [1786]. 24pp, stitched and untrimmed. Scattered foxing, occasional annotations in ink by a farmer about his flocks and crops. Very Good.

With a several-page account of Herschel's recent planetary discovery. Also included are Court schedules, roads and distances, a table of the weight and value of coins. One of several variants, this has the notation in Roman type, 'Eleventh of American Independence' on the title page. It looks like Issue B as set forth in Alden, and repeated in ESTC.
