A Journal of the Plague Year

£12.99

Product description

Subtitled: ' 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, Written by as Citizen who Continued all the While in London Never Made Public Before'

Daniel Defoe's famous book written in 1722 recounts the plague of 1665 and its effects on London. This is the Third Edition, published in 1888 by George Routledge and Sons, in the Morley's Universal Library series. It includes an introduction by Henry Morley, Professor of English Literature at University College, London.

One of the advertisement pages opposite the end papers has been ripped in half but all other pages are complete.

There is a fair amount of wear, bumping and rubbing to the covers and the front end paper is torn with a large piece missing. However all internal pages are complete and are in a good readable condition, although somewhat yellowed. Overall in fair condition for a book of this age.
