    English Text:

    This work deals with calculating the leap year along with reckoning holidays, seasons, and their interpretation. Almost all of the pages have some form of decoration, with naïve folk-art images and motifs, or charts, tables, and other graphic tools. The illustrations are executed in gouache and water color in which the zodiacal imagery is especially charming.
