The Great PlagueBook - 2000
The Great Plague of 1665/6 is the best known epidemic in English history. This is partly because of its sheer scale, and partly because of the vivid evidence provided by Samuel Pepys. This study examines the origin, nature and impact of the plague and looks at contemporary opinions regarding its cause together with the measures taken by national and local government to restrict its spread and to deal with its victims.
