Manuscript, in a single hand, of a collection of several hundred lighthearted prose anecdotes and panegyric poems, primarily by unidentified authors. Many of the anecdotes concern miraculous events or famous individuals. The first part of the volume contains short prose entries with titles such as Of two monsters in the Ottoman Empire; Of the great ages of some people; Of a savage woman; and An account of a talking partridge at North Carlston in Yorkshire.
