Description
Erotic misdemeanors in an Irish beanfield, the recipe for a frog barometer fresh from the French court, a parrot convicted of heresy and burnt at the stake in Spain, a Dutch stage effect for ejecting a wig (by means of a spring) during Hamlet's ghost scene—these are just few of the 18th- and 19th-century news items of London and Birmingham that jostle seemingly at random in the volumes of clippings collected by draper Francis Cox (1752–1834), who bequeathed his Fragmenta to the British Museum. For 60 years Cox accumulated articles on everything from duels to playhouses, foreign travel to warfare; Simon Murphy has selected the most amusing and bizarre to create this historical miscellany of intrigue and delight.
