This little volume draws on the accumulated wisdom of the British Library’s medieval manuscripts, Victorian manuals and early 20th century self-help guides to provide a wondrous rag-bag of information on matters as diverse as curing sea-sickness (the ‘cure’ includes tea and gingernuts); reading the future from coffee grounds; how to put back a dislocated jaw; and skinning the eponymous lion.
