As in preceding years, Warner had this almanac printed in Philadelphia; but structure of the content herein evinces changes to his earlier practice of having essentially identical editions produced for the Virginia and Pennsylvania markets. Here, the heavily illustrated pages – the title page, the anatomy/zodiac page, and the twelve calendar pages – were printed by Lydia Bailey and appeared in several other mid-Atlantic almanacs for 1820 with the individual title pages modified for each edition; the remainder of the text here was produced by the firm of Cusack & Frankish, who printed largely identical content for Warner's almanacs in different typesettings and page arrangements after page 16 in both; that variation included resetting the advertisement for Warner's bookstores on pages 37-48 in both. The printers' colophon seen in this edition is absent from the Philadelphia one, so masking their common origin.
