Yet its populous river, its timbered streets, fashionable ladies, old St Pauls, the devestation of the Fire, the palace of Whitehall and the meadows of Islington live on for us in his etchings.Drawing on numerous sources, Gillian Tindall creates a montage of Hollars life and times and of the illustrious lives that touched his. It is a carefully researched factual account, but she has also employed her novelists skill to form an intricate whole - a lifes texture which is also an absorbing and occasionally tragic story.
