Book - 2002
Rate this:
Between 1720 and 1751, the gin craze nearly overwhelmed London. Based on extensive research, this title follows the history of gin, or geneva - from its introduction from Holland after the Glorius Revolution, to its role as the sustenance of the poor, a quick trip to oblivion in the squalid and diseased poverty of eighteenth-century London.
