Thunder, Flush and Thomas Crapper (Paperback)

Adam Hart-Davis

-  

Author of this book is a very well-known writer and broadcaster. This title includes numerous illustrations. This is the perfect book to keep by the loo. "Thunder, Flush and Thomas Crapper" is a dictionary of all things lavatorial, from the Abbot of St Albans (allegedly the first Englishman to have a W.C., c. 1115) to the zero-gravity loo (as featured in the film 2001: a Space Odyssey), by way of the dog toilet, the night-soil men who took away the sewage in the streets and the superloo, successor to the pissoir. Meticulously researched and packed with information (as well as plenty of humour), this is a book that everyone should keep by their loo.
