I have recently used thsi book for a school project; all I needed was the first fourty pages (the biography) and it was absolutely perfect! It was extensive, detailed, easy to understand, and had all the information I needed for my report. As well as having his biography it also has all of his writings in both french and english. It was so extensive, I had a hard time finding any information about him that was NOT in this book! I highly recommend it for school projects or anyone who wants to know more about this interesting man.

alot of speculation concerning the london bridge!
the author might include the quatrain decryption published by mr. jerry steven winkle " century 1 quatrain 37- a bridge in a foreign land refer's to
the london bridge being moved to havasu city, arizona! which is the land of the sun so often used by nostradamus when he described london.
