This beautiful jacketed hardback presents Daniel Defoe''s classic A Journal of the Plague Year, a vivid and arresting account of the impact of London''s Great Plague of 1665.

Defoe charts the progress of the plague through London''s districts, how the city attempted to fight it, and describes the horror of carts piled high with the dead.
