Title represents second year of Stewart's affiliation with printer/publisher/bookseller Joseph Robinson (1787-1863) of Baltimore in producing his annual almanac; this 1820 edition is thus essentially identical to Robison's almanacs for 1820 (Shaw & Shoemaker 47942 & 49620) and a third he printed for Georgetown bookseller Elijah Weems (Shaw & Shoemaker 47942); all four of these Robinson-printed almanacs are typographically identical with the exception of changes to the text above the ornamental word "Almanac" on the title page and the imprint statement, with a differing advertisement on the last leaf reporting the books then available in each of the booksellers' stores – so customizing each edition for its particular "publisher." Copy filmed by Early American Imprints Series lacks leaf bearing Stewart's bookstore notice.
