Imprint states: "Alexandria: Printed by Cottom and Stewart, for themselves--J. Westcott--John Gray, Fredericksburg, and John Pumfrey, Richmond." The only known copy, held by the American Antiquarian Society and filmed by the Early American Imprints Series, lacks pages 5-6 and 23-26. Typographically identical to the Virginia Almanack for the year of our Lord 1807 (1806.041) with the exception of the word "Farmers'" substituted for "Virginia" on title page. Clearly a joint venture printed for distribution in Alexandria, Fredericksburg, and Richmond; Gray was a partner in the Alexandria firm of Robert & John Gray which recently opened a branch store in Fredericksburg; Pumfrey conducted a major bookbindery in Richmond at this time.
