Description

[Benjamin Franklin] Poor Richard's Almanack (1756), with Poor Roger's American Country Almanack (1756). Both are 4" x 6.5", sewn together, and toned and foxed with frayed edges. Poor Richard's Almanack (34 pages) contains illustrations of Zodiac Man and monthly panels, but is missing the title page. Benjamin Franklin generated folk humor through the guise of Richard Saunders in Poor Richard's Almanack for twenty-five years. He published his final almanac two years after this issue.

Poor Roger's American Country Almanack, for the Year of Christian Account 1756, By Roger More, Philodespot was "Printed and Sold by B. Franklin, and D. Hall, at the New-Printing-Office near the Market." This issue is complete (24 pages) with a Zodiac Man illustration. Both almanacs are housed in a custom-made binder.
