Following the success of the Beano spin-off Dennis the Menace into a separate bi-annual publication, Beryl appeared in Sep 1958 in her own first annual for the Christmas market though it is the 1959 annual. From 1961 the covers were laminated in line with Dandy and Beano books.

Just as I started to put this on-line Guide tgether in 2007, in Mar 2007 Comic Book Postal Auctions sold the first Beryl annual in VFN for £170. An amazing price. Though to be fair true high grade copies are tough to find. What looked to me like a VG/FN 1959 annual sold on eBay UK for £25 in Aug 2009. Very nice cover appeareance though there was some scribbling inside which lowered the value. This is a difficult series to value as, while early ones are scarce, what s the market demand?
