"Chatterbox Annuals"
A remarkable collection of forty bound editions of the children's Chatterbox Annual. Three are shown above. Volume Number 1 is present together with twenty-seven for which we have established publication dates. Thirteen are currently unassigned by year. From our researches it appears this series started in 1866 as a weekly, and finished in 1948. "
Annuals" are thus bound up volumes of the "Weeklies" produced by the Founder and First Editor : J. Erskine Clarke. The series was published for the propietors by Wells Gardner, Darton & Co. In our case, we suspect this is a complete run of the first forty years of publication. There appears to be no "reference set" online, showing cover image against year of publication. If anyone can direct us to this we would be most grateful. The best source we have found to date is in Copac.
