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 humor), this is a book that everyone should keep by their loo. The author of this book is a very well-known writer and broadcaster. This title includes numerous illustrations.
