Imprint states: "Petersburg, Va. Sold by J. W. Campbell." Title continues his association with Joseph Cushing of Baltimore (1816.116) in publishing annually an almanac calculated by John Sharp; this 1818 edition was printed by Cushing and his new partner Joseph Jewett; title is typographically identical to Cushing & Jewett's Washington Almanac (Shaw & Shoemaker 42830) with exception of changes to the title line above the word "Almanac" and the imprint at the foot of the title page; both of those almanacs are largely identical to their Town and Country Almanac (Shaw & Shoemaker 51717) with a different border on title page in addition to the text alterations therein, as well as the replacement of the text on pages 17-20 with different content; otherwise the three titles are identical, including an advertising notice for Cushing & Jewett's bookstore, so controlling production costs.
