The Wonders of the Sea-Shore



Notes, Drollery


Physical Geography, Discovery, Comparative Philology, Zoological Gardens

    The seaside thoughts of '"Glaucus" who is staying at a quiet watering-place, five miles from anywhere, and three from a Railway Station'. These idle ruminations include whether 'there ever was such as creature as a mermaid', 'what Speke and Grant had for dinner to-day', and 'if the Zoological Gardens are open at sunrise'.
