Schott’s Original Miscellany was a publishing phenomenon. It sired a host of sequels and parodies. But no matter how patiently and for how many years they waited, the potential feline readership was overlooked. Until now. A Cat-Lover’s Miscellany is how the original would have appeared had its creator been an obsessive cat owner. Or, indeed, a very curious cat. It parodies the randomness of entry and stylishness of design of the original, but is created entirely for cats and their obedient owners and admirers. The result is an irresistible outpouring of feline facts, embracing the essential, the trivial, the intriguing, and the extraordinary. Named in tribute to the Clintons’ White House moggy (and every other cat that inherited the presidential moniker), this is the perfect laptop or coffee-table book to give as a gift for cat lovers. Herein you will discover such treats as Sir Isaac Newton’s invention of the cat flap or kitty door; the origins and popularity of cat names; the power of catmint; how long cats spend asleep each day; T.S. Eliot’s Practical Cats; and the famous Chopin waltz that was in fact composed by the composer’s cat.

A gem of a reference book covering everything you could possibly want to know about Shakespeare between two handsome covers. Entries are quite short and range from "What did Shakespeare look like?", "Shakespeare on Film" and lists of compliments, oathes, lovers' vows and boys and girls names. There is an entry for each play too, summarising its plot and outlining major characters and themes. Details are given of the debates surrounding Shakespeare's identity, the known and fanciful facts of his life, and descriptions of the theatres in which he worked and the acting companies of which he was a member. A wealth of information and insight, both useful and entertainingly trivial, make this miscellany a book to satisfy students, buffs and bluffers alike.
