I've had a bunch of Ayer's almanacs over the years, but this is the oldest one I'vw ever had, or even seen. Other than a little light soiling to yellow cover it's in excellent condition. The good doctor had this to say about it: "Calculated for the four great Meridians of the Country, and consequently msy be relied on as accurate for every Place in the United States and British Provinces of North America. Also, giving Medical Counsel which may be relied on for the Treatment and Cure of the afflicting Diseases that prevail within the latitudes of the American States. Illustrated with a few small engravings.
