Previous edition: 2020
For more than 200 years the younger members of the British royal family including future monarchs have lived at Kensington Palace, alongside royal aunts and uncles, distant cousins and assorted aristocratic eccentrics. The palace has been described as a royal menagerie, a hive of industrious freeloaders, an ant heap and even a lunatic asylum. Tom Quinn takes the reader behind the official version of palace history to discover intriguing, sometimes wild, often scandalous, but frequently heart-warming stories.

Book:Fishing's strangest tales, extraordinary but true stories from over 200 years of angling history:2017 Book
Author: Quinn, Tom
Year: 2017
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Portico
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Extraordinary but true stories from over two hundred years of angling history. 'Fishing's Strangest Tales' gathers together choice stories and bizarre fishing tales from all over the world. Consider the Oxford scientist who in 1910 discovered the marvellous life-giving properties of brandy to fish who had otherwise gasped their last. Or how about the nine-year-old boy fishing for trout who caught a large mussel - containing no less than forty pearls - and managed to earn more in one day than his father, a farm worker, had earned in the last five years?
