Cox's Fragmenta II PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Cox's Fragmenta II free pdf A presumptuous bear imposing on a coachful of ladies, how to behave in the British Museum, the dangers of dallying with a black-eyed girl and the Royal Navy's inaugural biscuit machine are just some of the masterpieces of understated journalism collected by Francis Cox and contained in his Fragmenta. At ninety-four volumes, Cox's scrapbook has to be one of the largest collections of journalistic ephemera ever. For sixty years during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries he accumulated articles on everything from duels to playhouses, and foreign travel to warfare. Following on from the success of the first volume, Simon Murphy has selected more bizarre stories to create another delightful historical miscellany which will intrigue and amuse.
