De Is Rue's Pocket-books and Diaries for 1881 show that

even in what seemed nearly perfect, there may be improvements, for the waist- coat pocket Red-Letter Calendar, enclosed in a sheath of white metal, is a very happy conception. The leather sheaths always got shabby, and even worn out, before the end of the year ; but the new sheath, without being heavy, will keep the Calendar as new to the end of

1881 as it is now. The Card Calendars, little and big, are also very convenient and clear. The Pocket-books and Memorandum Books aro all that could be desired.
