I know many of these well enough to recite them. Some of my favourite quotes:
[Jim, who ran away from his nurse and was eaten by a lion:]
"Now just imagine how it feels
when first your toes and then your heels
and then by gradual degrees
your insteps, ankles, calves and knees
are slowly eaten, bit by bit!
No wonder Jim detested it!
No wonder that he shouted Hi!
The honest keeper heard his cry
Though very stout, he almost ran
to help the little gentleman!"
"Physicians of the utmost fame
Were summoned swiftly but they came
and answered as they took their fees
There is no cure for this disease
Henry will very soon be dead
His parents stood beside his bed
lamenting his untimely death..."
[Charles Augustus Fortescue:]
"And as for finding mutton fat
unappetising, far from that
He often of his own acccord
Would stand beside his father's board
and beg for, if he would not mind
the greasiest morsels he could find"
