Poor Richard’s Almanack is an almanac published annually from 1732 to 1758 by Benjamin Franklin, under the pseudonym of “Poor Richard” or “Richard Saunders”. Almanacks were very popular in colonial America, usually offering a mixture of weather forecasts, practical household hints, puzzles, and other amusements. 

Poor Richard’s Almanack contained the calendar, astronomical and astrological information, poems, and sayings. In the spaces that occurred between noted calendar days, Franklin included proverbial sentences about industry and frugality. Franklin also included the occasional mathematical exercise, and the 1750 Almanack features an early example of demographics. It is mainly remembered, however, for being a repository of Franklin’s aphorisms and proverbs, many of which live on in American English.
