This title is typographically identical to the Jefferson Almanack for 1806 (1805.036) and the Virginia Almanack for 1806 (1805.037), both issued by Cottom & Stewart for bookseller John Gray, with the exception of the phrase "Town and Country" used on the title page in place of "Virginia" or "Jefferson." With the firm conducting stores in Alexandria and Fredericksburg at this time, the title reflects their effort to present a non-partisan identity to potential buyers.
