The Oxford Almanack is a broadside printed annually to circulate a university calendar and has been published since 1674. This 1815 example includes a view of St. Frideswide's Shrine within Christ Church Cathedral (the saint was an English princess and abbess who lived 650-727 and is believed to have founded a monastery on the site). The calendar below is flanked by lists of British monarchs and officers of the university.
