Title represents second year of an affiliation between bookseller Cottom and printer Allegre in almanac publishing; this imprint is identical to Cottom's New Virginia Almanack for 1819 (1818.048), with exception of text changes to title-page above the words "Virginia Almanack" and the replacement of pages 32-33 in the North Carolina edition which list court sessions there. Imprint in both states: "Richmond: Published annually by Peter Cottom, and for sale at his bookstores in Richmond and Lynchburg," with a colophon appearing on the last page {p. 36[ recording "Printed by William Allegre." Copy seen by Shaw & Shoemaker (filmed by Early American Imprints Series) lacks last leaf [p. 35-36], so lacks Allegre colophon, leading his omission from catalogue entries for this item.
