“In 1783, there was an immense volcanic eruption in the Northern island of Iceland, which began on the 10th of June, and continued till the middle of August. One stream of burning lava extended 40 miles in length.”

– Wonderful Magazine, (vol. 4)

 

The ‘Wonderful Magazine’ is a fascinating periodical filled with bizarre stories and strange tales ranging from witch hunts, mythology, fortune-telling, and fantastical events! The contents, much of which are hardly truthful, are akin to the modern tabloid, but this magazine was much more adventurous for its time. The contents of this tome are astounding, including:

  • Volcano eruptions in Iceland (Laki)
  • Gothic story of Castle of Otranto
  • Physical description of Wallachia
  • Sleepwalkers
  • Physical description of Port Jackson, New South Wales
    • Details of an Aborigine Girl and Kangaroo
  • Madame Godin, misfortunes amongst the Amazons
  • Native American speeches to Creek Indians
  • Descriptions of the American crocodile (alligator), and snakes
  • Destruction caused by tornados in North Carolina
  • A History of Emelka Pugtschev, Cossak leader
  • Adventures of Capt. Socivizca
  • Torture and executions in Russia and Persia

Volume one of this original was the only volume to have the title of “The Wonderful Magazine.” All subsequent volumes include the world ‘new’ on the title. (BM Catalogue). However, this first edition volume is still desirable. This work includes 8 full-page illustrations.
