Longworth's third almanac and New York City directory, containing Abraham Shoemaker's "Astronomical Calculations." David Longworth published his popular almanac and directory annually from 1796 to 1817, after which point publication was assumed by Thomas Longworth and continued into the 1840s. The "New-York Register" begins with extensive lists of duties and other financial reports and concludes with a listing of major New York institutions, including government bodies, churches, fraternal lodges, hospitals, banks, and markets. The "City Directory" lists over 8000 New York residents with their addresses and means of livelihood, providing a fascinating cross-section of New York in the Federal era. Despite their popularity, few of the Longworth almanacs survive, particularly those published before 1820. NAIP and Spear together locate a total of only six copies. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 53691
