Diary and Correspondence - Samuel Pepys 1848 - Henry Colburn, London - Third Edition, Considerably Enlarged A finely bound five volumes edition of probably the most famous diary in the English language, illustrated throughout with full page plates and a folding historical map of London.

‘The 1660s represent a turning point in English history, and for the main events - the Restoration, the Dutch War, the Great Plague, the Fire of London - Pepys provides a definitive eyewitness account. As well as recording public and historical events, Pepys paints a vivid picture of his personal life, from his socialising and amorous entanglements, to his theatre-going and his work at the Navy Board. Unequalled for its frankness, high spirits and sharp observations, the diary is both a literary masterpiece and a marvellous portrait of seventeenth-century life’.
