Isaac D'Israeli and Benjamin Disraeli at Bloomsbury Square, Bloomsbury: Literary London #18

6 Bloomsbury Square. The young future prime minister and novelist Benjamin Disraeli (1804-81) lived here from 1817-24, although it is his father Isaac D'Israeli who is commemorated in the stone plaque here:

'ISAAC D'ISRAELI. AUTHOR LIVED HERE. BORN 1766 | DIED 1848' Isaac wrote The Curiosities of Literature here.
