This hand-coloured print in gold and colours is the title page from the Friendship's Offering or the Annual Remembrancer would make an excellent Christmas Present or New Year Gift for 1825. Published by Lupton Relfe, 13 Cornhill, London. The Friendship's Offering; or Annual Remembrancer, was commenced in 1824, by Lupton Relfe, formerly a bookseller in Cornhill and was discontinued in 1844. This type of highly illustrated books containing verses were referred to as "Annuals". The following extracts are from "The Annuals of Former Days" which appeared in The Bookseller, November 29, 1858: "It has been the fashion, of late years, to undervalue, most ungratefully as we think, the class of highly illustrated books which formed, more than a quarter of a century ago, so striking a feature of the literature and fine arts of the United Kingdom, under the designation of Annuals; and which, besides the services they rendered in diffusing a taste for elegant pursuits among the middle classes, were the means of affording profitable employment to a larger body of persons connected with the executive departments of literature and the fine and useful arts, than any other order of publications whatsoever. To the great body of booksellers, wholesale and retail, in all parts of the country, the Annuals were the sources of considerable profit, easily obtained; and that, moreover, at a period of the year when business is proverbially dull."
