Blunderbusses and Scorpions

The latest issue of Occasional Nuggets is now available!

What’s Inside?

Exploding blunderbusses; baby-marooning, amateur-dentist monarchs; scorpions soaked in rum; nautical hazing traditions and more. The Spring 2011 issue takes a look at George Miller’s The Traveller’s Guide to Madeira and the West Indies, a very strange nautical narrative published in 1815.

Fascinating content on the inside, hand-printed covers on the outside.
