Abstract:

"Enter the life and remarkable times of the lovable Samuel Pepys (pronounced "Peeps"). Born in London in 1633, he began keeping a diary on January 1, 1660. For nine years, he faithfully recorded the rich and varied details of 17th-century London life-- and painted a vivid picture of Pepys the man. Follow along as he strives to establish himself in his career and in society ; experience his unforgettable eyewitness accounts of the Plague and the Great Fire ; eavesdrop on his days as a surveyor-general in the Royal Navy-- and his affair with his wife's servant. Uniquely uninhibited, deeply personal, full of wit and style, Pepys' diary is one of the most celebrated journals of all time"--Container.
