1778. ... THE BURLINGTON ALMANACK for the Year of Our Lord 1778 ... By Timothy Trueman [pseud.]. Burlington: Isaac Collins, . 16 [of 18] leaves, lacking two leaves, A2 and C5D1-2. Stitching gone, outer pages a bit browned and fly-specked. "The late appearance of this almanac was probably caused by the large volume of war-related government printing in Collins' office, as well as the great scarcity of paper. The paper used for the almanac varies widely, both among copies and within individual copies. Collins continually advised his readers to collect rags."--Felcone. Isaac Collins' Revolutionary War Burlington almanacs are now almost unobtainable. In over forty years we have never offered a complete one. This one lacks two leaves, hence the very low price. Evans 15617; Felcone, Printing in New Jersey, 250; Drake 5115; ESTC W14014. (Inventory #: 14839)
