John Evelyn: The Diary
John Evelyn: The Diary
by Howard John Davies
Edition: Hardcover

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointed, 13 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: John Evelyn: The Diary (Hardcover)
I was disappointed by this book because it is merely a sketchy, colourless and bald account of what John Evelyn wrote. I had hoped for at least some of his own words.

Julian Curry.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good book, 5 Nov. 2013

Extremely elaborate research, with excellent photos. R.P.Roe persuaded me that whoever wrote the plays must have known the places where they are set. But this doesn't prove that they could not have been written by the butcher's son from Stratford-upon-Avon. He might have gone to Italy during the "seven lost years".
