The picture shows two pages from a Swedish almanac from 1712. In the top left corner you see the word “Februarius”, and at the bottom of the right page, the 30th day of that month is mentioned.
The two words to the right of the number “30” are:
“Tillökad”, that is, “added”.
“Snöö”, that is, “snow”. It was customary to include weather forecasts for the entire year in almanacs.
By the rest of the dates, the Swedish name day names are listed. To the right of February 14 it says Valentin, Swedish for en:Saint Valentine.
