A Pocket Almanack. For the Year of Our Lord 1786. Being the Second after Leap Year, and the Tenth of American Independence. Calculated for the Use of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, in Latitude 42 deg. 25 min. North. Longitude 71 deg. 4 min. West from the Royal Observatory at Greenwich. Boston: Printed and Sold by T. & J. Fleet, 1786.

    First edition. Twelvemo. 114 pages.

    The pamphlet is bound in string with a gray wrapper bound at the rear serving as the rear cover. The title page serves as the front cover rather than a gray wrapper, as at the rear. Some minor chipping to the first few pages in the upper right corner but does not affect the text, minor rubbing to the title page and back wrapper cover, some chipping to the back wrapper near the string binding. Altogether a very good copy.

    This small booklet covers all of the information one would have needed to live and conduct business in 1786 Massachusetts. Included are an almanac, matters of the court, matters of the militia; information regarding Harvard and Dartmouth, banks, religious assemblies and leaders, and listings of Representatives, Senators, Civil Officers.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
