Selling the ‘cure-alls’ he made by bottling leftover cooking grease in the kitchen of his parent's Cornish pub set Thomas Holloway on the road to becoming one of the richest self-made men in Victorian England. Here the author (a distant cousin) explores the rise and fall of his patent medicine empire and reveals how he used his millions to build the enormous Gothic college that still bears his name.
