Aberdeen's new prognostication for the year of our Lord 1774. Being the second after leap-year and from the creation, according to holy writ, 5778, but according to the best of Profane history, 5734 [Wh]ether with the rising and setting of the sun, [the] age and changes of the moon, the eclipses, disposition of the weather, the whole known fairs in Scotland, the distances of the principal towns in Scotland from Edinburgh, and a list of the Scots peers. Fairs are adapted to the new stile, fuller than [in] any other almanack; and merchants, travellers, or others, may depend on the correctness of this new prognostication. Merry Andrew, professor or prediction and stargazing at Tamtallan.
