Product Description

Review

‘The Latham-Matthews transcription of Pepys’ Diary is one of the glories of contemporary English publishing.’
The Times

‘The pleasure of Pepys – of reading him – is his own pleasure in experience… Pepys’ diary is the cheerful self-report, not of the man eminent in naval history, not of the historical witness, but of the unobjectionable hedonist.’
Guardian

‘Here, in one of the finest feats in all the long history of scholarship, is Pepys’ Diary, once and for all. Exegi monumentum aere perennius.’
Observer

‘The editors have achieved the impossible… one can now read the Diary perfectly easily, month by month, year by year… here at last is a really learned edtiion where the learning is put at the disposal of the layman.’
New Statesman

‘It isn’t often that one encounters a publication – especially of this magnitude – which achieves complete perfection, but there is no doubt that this does.’
Sir Arthur Bryant

A great read, very enjoyable; I read a few pages at bed-time. I have read abridged versions and wanted more detail, to see what I was missing and I do think it is worth reading the complete Pepys. However, I do wish they would put the english translation to Pepys's french/spanish passages; don't know why they assume everyone knows french/spanish.........but of course you get the gist of what he is up to!!

Another fascinating installment in the life of Samuel Pepys.From the minor concerns with physical ailments to the headaches of doing business for the benefit of the King and oneself,with occasional detours into marital infidelity-described in French-all aspects of life are there.Best read after the previous edition for the benefit of context and not ideal taken in isolation.
