Description: [48 pgs.]; 19 cm. (18mo).


As was their usual practice, Johnson & Warner published two variants of this almanac, one for their store in Richmond (this item) and another for their Philadelphia store (Shaw & Shoemaker 51505); both were printed for them on the press of Lydia Bailey in Philadelphia, though the Richmond edition does not carry her imprint on the title page; both editions are essentially identical with the exception that the text following an ornamental bar at the top of p. 41 to the end provides place-specific information for the two locales, detailing the local courts, their officials, and monetary exchanges. These were the last of the Johnson & Warner almanacs, as their partnership was dissolved in March 1816. The entirety of the supplemental text in this edition [p. 17-48] also appears in The Virginia intelligencer for 1815 (1815.030) published by Ariel Works; that title is clearly a collection of Bailey-printed sheets, including these from the Johnson & Warner almanacs for 1816, that were bound together with a Philadelphia-produced map, engraved by William Barker, and issued with a Richmond-printed title page.
