Poor Richard's Almanack (sometimes Almanac) was a yearly almanac published by Benjamin Franklin, who adopted the pseudonym of "Poor Richard" or "Richard Saunders" for this purpose. The publication appeared continually from 1732 to 1758. It sold exceptionally well for a pamphlet published in the American colonies; print runs reached 10,000 per year. Franklin, the American inventor, statesman, and publisher, achieved success with Poor Richard's Almanack.

Poor Richard’s Almanack was not all serious business, it published jokes and hoaxes. It is believed that Richard Saunders’ personality was modeled after Isaaq Bickerstaff Esq, a pseudonym used by Jonathan Swift as part of a hoax to predict the death of almanac writer John Partridge. One of Franklin’s most famous hoaxes The Death of Titan Leeds (see below) was based on this hoax. The almanac was a best seller in the American colonies printing up to 10,000 copies a year. Its success brought wealth to Benjamin Franklin

Poor Richard's Almanack book. The almanac would've been better off if it were organized by vice. As it is, all the varying topics were thrown together, and some witticisms were repeated almost verbatim or reiterated with only slight alteration a few pages apart from each other. Thanks Mr. Franklin, for writing a short book to help me reach my book goal.
