The Mariner’s Marvellous Magazine
In 1809, Thomas Tegg published a curious magazine in four volumes; each consisting of ten chapbooks which might originally have been sold separately. The Mariner’s Marvellous Magazine was illustrated and related stories of shipwreck, foundering, explosion, piracy, mutiny, and the torture practices of natives around the world. The demotic produces strange-sounding phrases like “studding athwart the wind” for running before the wind.
