Product Description

Review

‘In paperback at last! The maps, glossary, single-volume Companion and superbly usable Index, the inexhaustible footnotes, are all here. This is a marvellous and cheering event.’
Observer

‘There is horror… and there is humour… and its availability at an affordable price deserves recognition as a laudable publishing achievement.’
Cambridge Evening News

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By John Meanwood TOP 500 REVIEWER on 7 Jan 2012
Format: Paperback
One would normally purchase all ten volumes at the same time and would therefore have this companion volume to hand. If you are planning to purchase all ten volumes separately, I would suggest also buying this volume at the same time as the first. The alternative is to sit at a computer typing in the names you come across into an Internet search engine to find out who they are and how they relate to Pepys at the time.

I would also recommend Samuel Pepys: The Unequalled Self by Claire Tomalin for a good background read before starting the diaries themselves.

I am reading the free version of Samuel Pepys Diary on my Kindle, which is an earlier, less complete translation than that for which the Companion was produced. This does not matter as the Companion provides invaluable background information to the period covered. The Diary often surprises and delights but frequently mentions matters which were well known to Sam and his times but are a mystery to me. As I hoped when I bought it, the Companion answers many of these tantalizing snippets. It was a significant outlay as an adjunct to a "free read" but money well spent as far as I am concerned. For anyone with an inquiring mind (and who else would be reading Sam's Diary), it is essential.

27 of 66 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on 11 April 2002
Format: Paperback
Samuel Pepys is actually a very interesting character. He shows himself in a real and honest way (presumuably not realizing that it was going to be published one day!) He is a rogue towards his wife and tries to be successful in his business dealings (although I think there were slightly shady deals on a regular basis), but keen to get known and respected in the right circles. He goes drinking a lot (people never change)then gets bad hangovers the next morning and promises himself not to do it again, which he obviously does! He realizes that if he is to improve his lot in life he has to more restrained and as the years pass he increases his financial situation and becomes independent of his benefactor. He records his reactions to the Great Plague, the Great Fire of London and the restoration of the monarchy, becoming increasingly frustrated with the behaviour of the King. Worth reading, just for interests sake.

Diary of Samuel Pepys-Vol. X - Companion 2 July 2006
By David Adams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It is kind of hard to match up these reviews of the Pepys' Diary with specific volumes, probably due to the nature of ISBN numbers. However, this review is about Volume 10, the Companion to the 10 vol. set of paperbacks (complete edition) by the University of California Press. IT IS a valuable book indeed, being 1700 entries, alphabetically arranged, on the details about the people and places mentioned in the Diary. It has 626 numbered pages and genealogical tables and maps.
