Actually printed in Philadelphia by John Bioren; he printed editions of this almanac that were largely identical typographically, with the exception of the title pages and last gathering, as Poulson's Town and Country Almanac for 1806 (Shaw & Shoemaker 9184) for Conrad & Co. in Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, Pittsburgh, and Norfolk, as the Virginia & North Carolina Almanac for 1806 for Somervell & Conrad in Petersburg (Shaw & Shoemaker 9672), and this variant for Jacob Johnson in Richmond (Shaw & Shoemaker 50625). Johnson and the Conrad brothers were associated in several Philadelphia publishing ventures before Johnson opened his Richmond bookstore; this title appears to be a part of one such venture. This Richmond edition varies from the Petersburg one (1805.051) in a completely different title page (unlike the nearly identical ones seen in the Petersburg and Philadelphia editions) and pages 41-48, which combine like materials in a different order and advertising that is specific to the place of issue.
