Description
The remarkable story of how London was transformed after the Great Fire of 1666 into the most powerful city in the world, Leo Hollis's history begins in the 1640s, as the city was gripped by the tumult leading up to the English Civil War. Hollis charts the lives and works of five extraordinary men who would grow up in the chaos of a world turned upside down—architect Sir Christopher Wren, gardener and virtuosi John Evelyn, scientist Robert Hooke, radical philosopher John Locke, and builder Nicholas Barbon. At the heart of the story is the rebuilding of London's iconic St Paul's Cathedral, a symbol in stone of the re-creation of the first modern city.
