    Printed at intervals from 1733 through 1758, this bright, lively, and sly almanac contained agricultural predictions, charts of the moon's phases, and, in Franklin's words, "entertaining remarks." The focus in this edition - the most complete available - is on the last category, with such well-known aphorisms as "Fish and visitors stink after three days". Timelessly ingenious, the almanac is as fresh and engaging today as it was two and a half centuries ago.

It became the most popular book of it's kind in colonial America. This facsimile offers a unique and entertaining look at 18th century American life.
