From strange medical afflictions such as crumbling skeletons and "mortifying" limbs, to miraculous escapes and singular preservations, wonderful beasts such as the vast guardian snake of Nurrah, and all manner of plagues, earthquakes, and disasters, the Terrific Register was an essential purchase for lovers of strange tales across England. Among the prodigious marvels contained herein are giants, children with horns and babies brought up by wolves, uncanny dreams, devils, and attacks by everything from cannibals to buffalos, snakes, wolves, rats, crocodiles, bears, "the ferocious attack of a lioness on the Exeter mail," and a Yorkshire fisherman bitten 20 times by a shark.
