The Plagues of London

Available in Stock

For more than 400 years from the mid-14th century, bubonic plague was Europe's most deadly disease, profoundly affecting people's outlook and behaviour across the continent. As an international seaport, London was especially vulnerable; its last and most serious outbreak in 1665 killed around one fifth of the city's population. Porter's vivid history uses the accounts of Londoners who lived through the plague to describe its effects on their daily life. Slightly off-mint.
