Thank you one and all,I already see a few potential peaches I have not yet read.
I now have one second after, billions+billions and the descent on my ever growing "to buy" list.
Keep 'em coming people!
Another life changer for me is a book not many will have heard of,for was published in 1721.
It was called approximatley "An essay on the different causes of pestilent diseases.
By John Quincy M.D."
Now,Dr Quincy was an esteemed medicine man to victims of the Black Death/the Bubonic plague in Britain in the 1700s(the last blast of that curse),and
describes in olde englishe the symptoms,methods of treatment and methods of disposal
of those who sucuumb to the horror.
The booke had fold out charts of parchment detailing the amount of deaths in each town and village across England,with special detail to each borough
With a bit of practice at that language,that tome from the early 1700s seared into my mind the apocalyptic horrors of days gone by,and that we
survived and overcame such a horror,albeit at massive cost in lives.
A rare book indeed,which I once held for a week and read,owned by a sadly now passed old historian friend of mine.
I know not what became of that most historically valuable record,but I hope it was given to a museum.
I cannot find a trace of it on our internet,although I think this is the author-
If it is,he died a year after his book I refer to was published-did he also sucuumb to the horrid dark roses?
