From strange medical afflictions, including crumbling skeletons and 'mortifying' limbs, to miraculous escapes and singular preservations, wonderful beasts such as the vast guardian snake of Nurrah, and all manner of plagues, earthquakes and disasters, the Terrific Register was an essential purchase for lovers of strange tales across England. This selection contains the most startling tales from this 185-year-old publication. Amongst the prodigious marvels contained herein you will find giants, children with horns and babies brought up by wolves, uncanny dreams, devils, and attacks by everything from cannibals to buffalos, snakes, sharks, wolves, rats, crocodiles, bears, 'the ferocious attack of a lioness on the Exeter mail', and a man bitten twenty times by a shark whilst fishing in Yorkshire. Richly illustrated with original woodcuts, this volume will delight lovers of the Fortean everywhere.
