Physical description

24 unnumbered pages : illustrations (woodcut) ; 16 cm (12mo)


The title pages of Strong's almanacs for 1806 and 1807 published at New Haven identify Strong as the author of those formerly issued under the pseudonym of Hosea Stafford. Cf. ESTC

In comparison with Strong's An astronomical diary, calendar, or almanack for 1793 (Hartford), the astronomical material and eclipse predictions are identical, and the calendar page calculations practically so, with slight variations reflecting the difference in meridian between Hartford and New Haven. "Stafford" includes Strong's characteristic page entitled "Variations of sun and clock." Cf. ESTC

Advertised in the Connecticut journal, New Haven, Dec. 5, 1792. Cf. ESTC
