Old Poor Robin [electronic resource]: 1780. An Almanack, After the Old; Yet Nevertheless as Agreeable and Conformable as Head and Hands Can Make It, to the Newest New Fashion of All. Or, a New Edition of a Very Old Ephemeris; Wherein Thou, o Reader (If That Thou Canst But Read) Art Sure to Find Abundance and Plenty of Matters Most Dainty; Well Worthy of Thy Utmost Attention, Consideration, Observation, &C. But Particularly Deserving Thy Approbation and Preservation. Containing a Two-Fold Calendar: (Viz.) the Good, New, True, Honest, Punctual, Upright, and Downright English Account: And Also, the Foolish Fantastical, Whimsey-Headed, Idle Account of Sad Sinners, and Sorry Saints, From One End of the Year to the Other. Written by the Oldest and Honestest Poor Robin, Knight of the Burnt-Island; And a Most Sincere Well-Wisher to Every Honest Man. Being the One Hundred and Eighteenth Edition; And the Very Bissextile or Leap-Year; And Also the Twenty-Eighth of the New Style in Old England. Kind Gentle Reader, Honest Buyer; (Take Bob's Word For't) 'Tis His Desire to Please You Well,-But If He Miss His Aim for Once-He Tells You This; Some He May Please-Some, Not at All, But His Endeavour Ever Shall Be to Avoid Foolish Predictions, Which Are But Idle Lies and Fictions
