A thousand notable things... a collection of scarce, curious, and valuable receipts... humorous and instructive anecdotes, essays, tales, historical facts... To which are added... a discourse on the emigration of British birds.
An entertaining miscellany of folk remedies, anecdotes, etc ('Instance of gratitude in a goose') drawn from a variety of sources principally Thomas Lupton (fl. 1579-1583), with the 'Discourse' being that of George Edwards (orig. pub. 1795). The 'Notable things' are arranged in ten sections. An extraordinarily entertaining compilation. A scarce edition of a very uncommon title.
