THE NORTH-AMERICAN CALENDAR: OR THE RHODE-ISLAND ALMANACK, FOR THE YEAR OF OUR LORD 1783.
Printed by Bennett Wheeler, and Sold at his OFFICE, on the West Side of the Great-Bridge, Providence (Rhode-Island), 1782. 12mo, 32pp, stitched. Uniformly toned. Several astronomical illustrations, Very Good. Housed in an attractive, modern, half-brown morocco slipcase, with the bookplate of Elisha Whipple McGuire, late 19th century New York lawyer and book collector. This year's North-American Calendar prints the "Treaty of Alliance, Eventual and Defensive," between France "and the Thirteen United States of America." As the Almanac's preface to the Treaty states, it cements "the Union of the States of America" with "the French Nation, by which we are connected with that Power in the strictest Bands of national Union and Friendship:- May God long continue." A Table of Coins is included, along with tables of road distances and the other usual almanac components. This is one of two 1782 Providence printings by Wheeler [the other one "for Henry Barber, and sold by him at his office on the Parade, Newport"]. It includes Wheeler's notice, dated 11 November 1782, "That he has removed his OFFICE to the House formerly occupied by Capt. Gid. Manchester." Evans 17796. Alden 901. Drake 12869.
