Description
For lovers of strange tales across England in the early 19th century, the Terrific Register was an essential purchase, offering stories of strange medical afflictions (including crumbling skeletons and "mortifying" limbs), miraculous escapes, wonderful beasts like the vast guardian snake of Nurrah, and all manner of plagues, earthquakes, and disasters. This book collects the most startling tales from the 185-year-old publication, illustrated with their original woodcuts. Among the prodigious marvels herein you will find giants, children with horns, uncanny dreams, and attacks by everything from cannibals to buffalos, snakes to sharks, and "the ferocious attack of a lioness on the Exeter mail."
