In the 21st century, a scientist uncovers their Victorian ancestor's notebook in a box. This ancestor is Dr McCreebor - an eminent explorer, philosopher and collector of the very strange and truly creepy and his book is filled with the dark and disturbing stories he collected on his travels around the world during the reign of Victoria. After more than a century in a dusty attic, it can now be read…but only by the bravest. From shrunken heads to witches’ charms, saints’ blood to graverobbers’ remains, hangman’s salve to trepanning tools, this is a peek into a grisly and macabre past. Illustrated in a steampunk style with the good doctor’s sketches, maps, records and photographs.
