An important feature of English bookselling, these gift books included contributions from many of the foremost writers and artists of the day. Reproduction of the Annuals on microfiche opens up a rich resource both to literary scholars and researchers interested in the history of book production and illustration. Not only do they include little-known contributions by well-known writers, they also provide evidence of the tastes and social attitudes of their time.
