This calendar is in the form of a tablet, each leaf of which represents two days of the year. At the head of each page is a reproduction either of a famous painting dealing with some medical subject or of some well-known caricature drawing or the portrait of a medical celebrity. Besides this, under each date are noted one or more occurrences of importance in medicine, the announcement of the birth or death of a man prominent in research work and in practice, and pertinent aphorisms. Many astronomical data are also recorded.
