A scarce Mexican perpetual calendar and almanac, which contains thirty-five variations of the modern calendar and the Catholics feasts and holidays that fall on each day. The cycle of calendars holds through the year 2200, according to the title. The almanac at the rear is a combination of calendar history and lesson book, with instructions for calculating future dates, days of the week, calendar year types, and so on. An excellent book for those alive in 1889 who were planning to live another two centuries. OCLC locates only one copy, at UT Austin.
