In the fall of 1814, the former Alexandria partnership of Cottom & Stewart reemerged briefly as an almanac-publishing venture; employing D.B. Bullock of Louisa County as the calculator, Stewart printed six nearly identical almanacs for himself in Alexandria (Alexandria Almanac for 1815 [1814.070] and Virginia Almanac for 1815 [1814.071]), for Peter Cottom in Richmond (Cottom's New Virginia Almanac for 1815 [1814.051]), and for Richard Cottom in Petersburg (this item), as well as for Georgetown booksellers Joseph Milligan (Georgetown Almanac for 1815 [Shaw & Shoemaker 51392]) and Richards & Mallory (Town and Country Almanac for 1815 [Shaw & Shoemaker 51443]); only variations in the typography in all five are in changes made to title page and imprint of each, so making that edition a title specific to the store mentioned, though the two Georgetown editions also lack the final two pages of the others that reported Virginia-related information.
