Rare and charming little calendar - following the first one of 1880 - compiled by this New York antiquarian, member of the New York Historical Society, and co-founder of the Bradford Club, which was a group of antiquarians devoted to the printing of rare manuscripts and scarce pamphlets. Printed by the Analectic Press by Charles Moreau (John's brother), the book describes an important event in the history of New York City for each day of the year, and provides a relevant quotation from Shakespeare.

In his preface to the 1880 calendar, the compiler noted that only a few copies were printed. The Analectic Press typically printed editions of 50 to 60 copies.
