Revolutionary-era almanac by Isaac Warren, featuring a map of the forts at New York. Also included are lists of roads, pieces of verse, an account of Peter the Great, and the "Celebrated Speech of Galgacus...worthy of the attention of all officers and soldiers in the American Army" (p.[17]). The North AMERICAN IMPRINTS Project notes that while Evans is correct in calling the almanac "essentially the same" as Samuel Stearns' NORTH- AMERICAN'S ALMANACK for the same year with regard to the prose matter and the map of the New york forts, the calendar is entirely different from that of Stearns.
