     This book was published in London: Printed for J. Dodsley, in Pall-Mall, 1775. Published continuously since 1758, the Annual Register has chronicled British and world history from the time of the French and Indian War to the present. The book functioned much like a variety magazine today, presenting not only articles on history and politics, but also ones on the culture and the things that interested people from one period to the next.
