25. Schott's Quintissential Miscellany

This was a disappointment. I very much enjoyed Ben Schott's earlier miscellanies, and I was looking forward to this one coming out. But, it seems to contain an awful lot of material from the 18th and 19th centuries that I assume Schott hopes we will find charming, but which I really found boring.

I am the audience for this kind of random trivia- there is no better bathroom or bedside reading! But, this didn't work for me.

In fact, I plan on taking his original miscellany off the shelf to see if it still lives up to my memories.
