With removal of printer Benjamin L. Bogan to Woodstock in late 1817, Stewart formed a new almanac publishing alliance in 1818 with the Baltimore printer/publisher/bookseller Joseph Robinson (1787-1863) for producing his 1819 almanac; this title is essentially identical to The Franklin Almanac for 1819 (Shaw & Shoemaker 44073) issued by Robinson in Baltimore; the only differences in composition between the two imprints are in a reset of the title page that changed all after the words "American Independence" in the Alexandria edition (so removing the credit to John Sharp for calculating the ephemerides) and the alteration of the final two pages to create a two-page advertisement for Robinson's Circulating Library and his printing office, where the Baltimore edition carried a single-page notice for his Circulating Library alone after a page of "Anecdotes."
