Table of Contents

The Annual Register is a complete and detailed chronicle of events from 1758 to the current day. As well as being a record of events, The Annual Register was originally conceived as a miscellany, reproducing state papers, reviewing important books, and featuring historical sketches, poetry, observations on natural history, and other essays, reproduced from books and periodicals.
