Le Siecle etoit de 52. Années Solaires, chacune de 365. jours, 4 indictions de 13. Ans chacune formoient la division de la rouë & repondoient aux 4. parties du Monde de la maniere suivante.

Ans fut fini, de la maniere qui suit. On observoit cette maniere de compter par treize non seulement dans les années; mais aussi dans les mois, Ils recommencoient lors qu'ils arrivoient à 13.

A prospect of Veracruz, a major port city on the Gulf of Mexico; sailing boats in foreground. William Bullock (c.1773 - 1849), traveller, naturalist, and antiquarian, established the London Museum, also known as the Egyptian Hall or Museum, or Bullock's Museum, at 22 Piccadilly in 1812. His book is an interesting account of a journey in Mexico, illustrated with topographical views and images of indigenous Mexicans. Upon his return to England from an 1822 trip to the country, he advertised an exhibition on Mexico at the Museum. The exhibition catalogue was titled 'Catalogue of the Exhibition, called Modern Mexico; containing a panoramic view of the city, with specimens of the natural history of New Spain ... Now open for public inspection at the Egyptian Hall, Piccadilly.'
