This might be amusing but there are a number of other works of this
genre. In 1819 (!)
Richard Whately, who later became Archbishop of Dublin, wrote
"Historic doubts relative
to Napoleon Bonaparte." This & similar things are discussed briefly
in De Morgan's _A
Budget of Paradoxes_, Vol.1, pp.246-248.
