Item description for The Black Death and Other Putrid Plagues of London (Of London series) by Natasha Narayan...
What exactly is a bubo? Was "Ring-a-ring o' roses" the rap of its day? And was TB the fashion victim's disease? From the Black Death to the smelly slums of Victorian London, from dangerous quacks to the ingenious Dr. Snow, the man who solved the cholera problem, this book goes into some gory detail about how people got ill, why they got ill, and the many centuries of discoveries and curious cures.
