About the book:

The haunting cry of a bell-ringing collector of plague victims, "Bring out your dead!", has echoed across the centuries. It survives in historical consciousness thanks to this classic 1722 account of the epidemic of bubonic plague that ravaged England nearly 60 years earlier. A child of 5 in the plague year, Daniel Defoe applied his considerable talents as both a journalist and a novelist to this historical and fictional reconstruction of the Great Plague of London in 1664-1665. Written in the form of an eyewitness report by a Londoner named "H F", Defoe's novel abounds in memorable and realistic details, surpassing even firsthand accounts in its air of authenticity. ### Includes a forward by FH Plumb
