A superb book which gives a great insight into how people lived in London in the 1700's and one which later historians have often consulted as a reference in their own works.
It covers just about every conceivable subject including life and death, housing and growth, immigrants and emigrants, people and trades, parish children and the uncertainties of life, plus much, much more.
There are extensive notes to sources and references plus excellent appendices which include statistics regarding infant mortality, epidemics and housing rating plus a wonderful section of apprentice hearings in the Middlesex Sessions Records.
A wealth of information and a snapshot in time.
High quality scanned images of the whole of the original book. This CD has been bookmarked for easy
navigation, and pages can be browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
