Attributed to Strong in: Bates, A.C. "Checklist of Connecticut almanacs." Proceedings of the American Antiquarian Society, n.s. v. 24 (1914): 102, 129, 141. The last two issues, for 1791 and 1792, are attributed to Strong by Evans.
Except for the title page, the almanac is identical throughout in contents and typography with Stafford's almanack for 1787, by Hosea Stafford (New Haven : T. &. S. Green). The astronomical content of the "Stafford" series is identifiable as the work of Strong, and the title pages of his almanacs published at New Haven for 1806 and 1807 name him as author.
The Anatomy is the only illustration.
