Notes:The calendar pages of the Wilimington almanack (1762-1794), except for the verse and prose matter, are identical line for line with the concurrent issues of the Pennsylvania town and country-man's almanack (1764-1777) calculated by John Tobler. "Thomas Fox" is a pseudonym. Author's preface to the 1762 issue states that he had "for some years, observed those almanacks published in America," and had "formerly, in Europe," learned the use of Thomas Street's tables. Tobler was a Swiss immigrant. Though the Tobler almanacs issued after his death in 1765 have been attributed to his son John, the publisher's preface to the South-Carolina and Georgia almanack for 1764 (Savannah) states that Tobler's calculations had then been completed for publication up to 1800. The later almanacks contain no indication that Tobler junior is the author.
