The Diary of Samuel Pepys : A Selection Selection Paperback
by Samuel Pepys
Edited by Robert Latham
The 1660s represent a turning point in English history, and for the main events - the Restoration, the Dutch War, the Great Plague, the Fire of London - Pepys provides a definitive eyewitness account.
Along with lively descriptions of his socializing, his amorous entanglements, his theater-going & music-making.
Unequaled for its frankness, high spirits & sharp observations, the diary is both a literary masterpiece & a marvelous portrait of 17th-century life.
