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 "Lincoln has a curator s gift for selecting all the right details for a thoroughly absorbing account."-Tony Barber, Financial Times, "Best Books of 2021: History" The Gunpowder Plot, the Civil Wars, Charles I s execution, the Plague, the Great Fire, the Restoration, and then the Glorious Revolution: the seventeenth century was one of the most momentous times in the history of Britain, and Londoners took center stage. In this fascinating account, Margarette Lincoln charts the impact of national events on an ever-growing citizenry with its love of pageantry, spectacle, and enterprise. Lincoln looks at how religious, political, and financial tensions were fomented by commercial ambition, expansion, and hardship. In addition to events at court and parliament, she evokes the remarkable figures of the period, including Shakespeare, Bacon, Pepys, and Newton, and draws on diaries, letters, and wills to trace the untold stories of ordinary Londoners. Through their eyes, we see how the nation emerged from a turbulent century poised to become a great maritime power with London at its heart-the greatest city of its time.
