Glorious Years: French Calendars from Louis XIV to the Revolution @ Waddesdon Manor | Waddesdon | England | United Kingdom

Glorious Years is a celebration of the power of the printed image before photography. An exhibition of rare calendars, published in Paris in the 17th and 18th centuries, from their golden period under Louis XIV, through to the Revolution, when time itself was re-invented, with new ways of illustrating and naming the days and years.
