- "Isaac Bickerstaff" is a common pseudonym in almanacs., Erroneously attributed by Evans to Benjamin West. West and Carter, the publisher, severed relations with the 1781 issue. West's almanac was published thereafter at Providence by Bennett Wheeler as the North American calendar, while Carter continued the New England almanack over the Bickerstaff pseudonym, with which West is often identified.
