By Daniel Defoe

This collector's edition of 1665, A Journal of the Plague Year by Daniel Defoe (1978, Easton Press, Leather Bound, Illustrated, Collector's Edition), is a must-have for anyone who loves classic and captivating accounts of historical events.

The book tells the story of one man's experiences of the year 1665, in which the bubonic plague shook London and killed thousands of people. The book is a historical and fictional reconstruction by Defoe, narrated by "H.F.," who claims to be an eyewitness to the horror and the heroism that unfolded during the plague.
