Description: Starting with the English riots of 1752 over "losing" 11 days in the switch from the Julian to the Gregorian calendar, Poole (history, University College of St. Martin, Lancaster) offers a history of the context and impact of early modern calendar reform from the 16th through 19th centuries. To represent the perspective of the period, the author includes neglected works by Isaac Newton and others. References include printed primary sources, newspapers and periodicals, annual almanacs, and contemporary works. Appends tables of days of fairs and holidays under the new and old style reckoning systems. UCL stands for University College London.
