Annual register

Provides access to a year-by-year record of British and world events. Published every year since 1758, the Annual Register was originally conceived as a miscellany of state papers, reviews, historical sketches, poetry, and other essays. Since the 1920s its content has been a chronicle of events, brief retrospectives on the year's cultural and economic developments, and a short selection of documents and obituaries of eminent persons who died in the year. The online version includes every volume published and will be updated with the latest volume each year
