    In the British Library lurks a 94-volume collection of newspaper clippings compiled over a period of 60 years by Francis Cox (1752-1834) and covering a vast array of subjects (eg. 'Extraordinary Sagacity of Rats', 'An Account of a Maccaroni' [sic], 'Bathing Trusses', 'The National Debt'). Simon Murphy has selected the strangest and most amusing of these articles to create an intriguing historical miscellany.
