About the Book An almanac is an annual publication that lists a set of events in the following year, including such information as weather forecasts, farmers' planting dates, tide tables, and other data in tabular form. Celestial figures and a wide range of statistics are to be found in almanacs, including the rising and setting times of the Sun and Moon, dates of eclipses, hours of high and low tides, and dates of religious festivals. In the United States Benjamin Franklin began publishing Poor Richard's Almanack from 1733-1758, and Benjamin Banneker, a free African-American, published a number of almanacs from 1792 to 1797. Also in this Book A library catalog (catalogue) is a register of the bibliographic items found in a library or network of libraries that are spread over several locations. There are many other types of catalogs, including exhibition catalogs, music catalogs, database catalogs, font catalogs, stamp catalogs and auction catalogs.And in this Book An encyclopedia (encyclopaedia) is a reference book that provides brief summaries of general knowledge or of a specialized field or discipline. Encyclopedias are comprised of topics that are generally arranged alphabetically but sometimes thematically. The entries are longer and more detailed than in most dictionaries. While encyclopedias have existed for 2,000 years, Chambers' Cyclopaedia (1728), the Encyclopédie of Denis Diderot and Jean le Rond d'Alembert (1751 onwards), and the Encyclopædia Britannica were the first to be presented in a form that we would recognize today.About us Leopold Classic Library has the goal of making available to readers the classic books that have been out of print for decades.
