Hello, dear reader! I am Antiquan Scrivinus, and this is my seminal work, the Almanack of the Worlde. At four and eighty years of age there is little in the civilized world that I have not seen, and throughout all of this traveling my quill has been scurrying to and fro to bring you this great work. Never before has such a complete tome existed. Pray enjoy your read; it is my greatest wish that you shall be well informed by this humble historian and anthropologist!
