SAMUEL PEPYS    Book Number: 25259    Product format: Paperback

Samuel Pepys (1633-1703) began his celebrated diary on the 1st January 1660 immediately prior to the Restoration of Charles II to the throne and subsequent loosening of the rigid moral and social codes enforced during the Puritan Commonwealth. As variously Clerk to the Council, an MP, a prisoner in the Tower of London, twice Secretary to the Admiralty and President of the Royal Society, Pepys was in a unique position to observe and record in detail a fascinating ten-year period of English history. This included not only the Restoration, but the Great Plague of 1665 and the Fire of London the following year. A regular attendant at the King's Theatre, he was a hearty eater and drinker and delighted in recording his fondness for women, especially his own and his friends' young servant girls. 816 page paperback at great value.
