The 1660s represent a turning point in English history, and for the main events - the Restoration, the Dutch War, the Great Plague and the Fire of London - Pepys provides a definitive eyewitness account, along with lively descriptions of his socializing, his amorous entanglements, his theatre-going and music-making. Unequalled for its frankness, high spirits and sharp observations, the diary is both a literary classic and a marvellous portrait of 17th-century life.
Samuel Pepys (1633-1703) achieved fame as a naval administrator & a friend & colleague of the powerful & learned. For nearly 10 years he kept a private diary in which he recorded life in Restoration London. Robert Latham edited the 11 volume edition of Pepys diary
