Reader's note

Our vintage books make beautiful literary gifts. Daniel Defoe's A Journal of the Plague Year is a delightful dose of nostalgia and a lovely gift for you or your favourite bookworm. A Journal of the Plague Year: Being Observations or Memorials, Of the most Remarkable Occurrences, As well Publick as Private, which happened in London During the last Great Visitation In 1665, commonly called A Journal of the Plague Year is a book by Daniel Defoe, first published in March 1722. “Once ‘free’ in the streets, what then? Fear and panic could destroy the city as much as plague itself. Many of the doctors fled, along with the rich and powerful; quacks preyed on the poor with their neverfail miracle drugs. Churches and conventicles and synagogues were empty. Neighbours informed against each other. People lied to each other – and to themselves... here I cannot but take notice that the strange temper of the people of London at that time contributed extremely to their own destruction.” A gem among a bounty of stunning vintage books and classic novels on our online used bookstore.
