A beautiful Easton Press Edition of Daniel Defoe's 1722 classic. This novel is an account of one man's eye witness experiences in the city of London in the year 1665, as the city is overrun with the Bubonic Plague. Defoe's work takes us down to street level, gripping with the reality of disease and death during one of the darkest periods known to man. As the modern world struggles to come to terms with similar threats -- be it Coronavirus, or Ebola, or Flu, or any variety of terror -- Defoe's work is as relevant as ever.
