Newbury-Port: Printed and Sold by John Mycall, and Draper & Folsom of Boston, . Stitched, 12 leaves as issued. Light wear, Very Good.
This is a scarce Revolutionary-era almanac, which issued from Boston as well as Newburyport. Ours is "identical in content with the Draper & Folsom (Boston, 1778) edition, except that the list of roads at end is less extensive" [ESTC]. This imprint was issued in two states-- the other lists the printer as J. Mycall instead of John Mycall.
The almanac describes "The grand Pilgrimage to Mecca," warns of "The Danger of exorbitant Taxes," advises "How to remove Freckles," discloses a cure for cholera and flux, and prints "Excellent Receipts for the Jaundice... For the Dropsy." Also included are tables of roads.
