One of two editions of this almanac and register published by Mills and Hicks in Boston in 1774. The compilers and publishers note that this publication is their first undertaking of such a combined publication. The almanac's eclipse predictions and calendar calculations duplicate those in BICKERSTAFF'S ALMANACK FOR...1774, which was also published by Mills and Hicks.
