The original editions of Curiosities of Bristol contained every surprising fact the Victorian reader could wish to know about the city's history. For the first time in more than 150 years, this fascinating volume collects together the complete run of this extremely rare publication. Every page is bursting with strange tales of local interest: antiquities and relics, folklore and magic, strange deaths, wicked murders and the complete history of events such as the Bristol Riots of 1831, many of which are infamous.

Also including a visitor's guide to the city, and with the addition of beautiful contemporary plates from Skelton's 1850 masterpiece Etchings of the Antiquities of Bristol, this book will delight residents, visitors and lovers of curious tales alike.
