by Margarette Lincoln

The first comprehensive history of seventeenth-century London, told through the lives of those who experienced it

“Lively and arresting. . . . [Lincoln] is as confident in handling the royal ceremonials of political transition . . . as she is with London’s thriving coffee-house culture, and its turbulent maritime community.”—Ian W. Archer, Times Literary Supplement

“Vivid and engrossing. . . . Lincoln is adept at spotting eloquent details that stick in the mind.”—John Carey, The Sunday Times (London)
