A nice illustrated edition of this classic to commemorate the 300th anniversary of its publication. This book is very relavant in the face of the 2020 world-wide pandemic. Our version has all the original text and 18 illustrations and maps.
Do the following edicts sound familiar in this day of coronavirus and instructions from the CDC? Well -- these are verbatim from orders posted in 1665 during the plague in London as contained in this journal. We should have heeded these rules a long time ago.
A Journal of the Plague Year was published in 1722 as an account of one man's experiences during 1665 when the bubonic plague struck the city of London. Known as the Great Plague of London, it was the last such major epidemic in that city. The book is told somewhat chronologically, though without sections or chapter headings. Defoe was only five years old in 1665 when the Great Plague took place, and the book itself was published under the initials H. F. and is probably based on the journals of Defoe's uncle, Henry Foe. The book goes into great detail, providing tables of casualty figures. The book is often compared to the actual, contemporary accounts of the plague in the diary of Samuel Pepys.
