THE GREAT FIRE OF LONDON A book that entertains, informs and suggests startling parallels to today's world. _____________________________________________________________________________ Join such historical figures as King Charles II whose far-seeing plan rebuilt a city; Samuel Pepys whose diary told the tale; and Christopher Wren whose architectural genius brought London back to life. _____________________________________________________________________________ 'Succeeds in evoking all the sights, sounds and famous personages of that era in capable, interesting easy-to-read style.' ---Library Journal ' The narrative brings the old tale to life, especially it reveals the epic mess, the tangle of antique property law which had to be cut, set aside, or unraveled, and the sudden bankruptcies, privations, courage and tenacious good will on which the new London was slowly---so slowly!---to rise again...'[It is] at times a racy account of that fortunate calamity.' ---Christian Science Monitor ' . . . a straightforward account of the Great Fire of 1666 . . . fireproof correct, and the illustrations have vitality and veracity.' ---The Kirkus Service
