Tales from the Terrific Register

£3.99

Sorry, this item is now out of stock.

Fast-paced, astonishingly gory and always featuring as many corpses as possible, the Terrific Register was a publishing sensation. Charles Dickens was never without a copy and recalled how it 'frightened my very wits out of my head, for the small charge of a penny weekly'. This selection, reprinted with the original woodcuts, includes reports of executions - notably that of Lord Balmerino in 1746 - suicides, murders, the plague in London and the Great Fire, and fatal falls from the Monument.
