The Terrific Record; and Chronicle of Remarkable and Interesting Events, &c. [No.1 through to No. 49, bound.]

London: W. Winn, later William Cross, later E. Steill, 1849 - 1850. 784pp, preceded by two full-page illustrations. A 16-page weekly compendium of sensational and supposedly true tales, the front page of each issue carrying a vivid woodcut illustration and a list of contents. The first issue being dated February 10th 1849, the (undated) last issue or so would have been 1850: appearing thus to correspond to the copy at Oxford, and likely constituting the complete run. Paper a little friable, with occasional small chips, and some tears repaired with archival tissue. Contents good, with some tanning, foxing, and soiling thoughout, and a stain at 590-591 where a fragment of the original leather spine was laid in. In a recent quarter binding of russet buckram with yellow cloth boards, spine titled in gilt. [While the most characteristic titles are the lurid: 'Dreadful Sufferings of Three Officers among Savages', 'Horrible Punishment of Russian Pirates', 'Shocking Death of Mr Wombwell by an Elephant', there is plenty of other material, including accounts of foreign customs, travellers' hardships, family troubles, tales from history, and the behaviour of fearful creatures.] Contents VG, binding fine.
