Published as a monthly magazine from 1844 to 1846 & gathered as an annual in three volumes of which this is the middle one. The printer & publisher was Thomas Cook, founder of the world-wide travel agency bearing his name. In 1832, Cook moved to Adam and Eve Street in Market Harborough. Influenced by the local Baptist minister Francis Beardsall, he took the temperance pledge on New Year's Day in 1833. As a part of the temperance movement, he organised meetings and held anti-liquor processions. Thomas Cook worked successfully for some years as an important printer and publisher in Leicester. However, his famous pioneering railway trip to a temperance rally in Loughborough in 1841 would lead eventually to a change of career. Excursions further afield led ultimately to the establishment of a large international travel business which became so successful that Cook gave up his book trade activities in 1854.
