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

But what made Poor Richard’s Almanack uniquely popular were all the other things Franklin inserted into the breaks between calendar pages and into the margins. There were poems and excerpts from inspirational literature, witty phrases and sayings, astrological and astronomical information (basically the same thing back then), lots of humor and wordplay, puzzles and math games, legal and medical information, recipes, trivia, and even ongoing digs at the publishers of competing almanacs.
