Imprint states: "Printed by Cottom & Stewart, for R. Cottom, Petersburg." Richard Cottom had worked for brother Peter in Alexandria before 1810, and now conducted an independent business in Petersburg with some financial backing from his more-established brother. This title was one of three essentially identical almanacs published by Cottom & Stewart for 1811; it was their regular practice to issue a common almanac with interchangeable title pages, targeting three distinct locales in Virginia, here for Alexandria (1810.054), for Petersburg (this item), and for Fredericksburg (1810.056); this series was the first in which the non-Alexandria editions were not produced for a Cottom & Stewart branch store, as their partnership was due to expire in 1811.
