An early almanac by one of the most prolific almanac makers in colonial America. Ames' run of almanacs predated Benjamin Franklin's POOR RICHARD'S by eight years. Ames had a long and notable career, producing popular and highly-regarded almanacs for more than fifty years. Includes "A Brief Chronology of Remarkable Events, relating chiefly to the [French and Indian War]", including Braddock's defeat. Additionally, Ames speculates about the future of the British colonies and the population growth and prosperity that will result from a British cession of Canada. EVANS 9053. CLARK I:191. DRAKE 3135.
