The Shorter Pepys by Robert Latham

Samuel Pepys (1633-1703) served as King's Secretary to the Admiralty from 1684 to 1688 under both King Charles II and King James II as well as being a Member of Parliament but is best known for his fabulous diaries which offer a record of life in seventeenth century London featuring detailed first-hand accounts of London's Great Plague (1665-1666) and Great Fire (1666). This abridgement of the definitive edition contains about one third of the original diary & offers an unbroken and highly readable narrative retaining the full character of the complex diary, both in overall content & in the wealth of captivating detail that gives Pepy's style its unmistakable identity. The text is supported by an introduction, chronology, glossary, index, maps & plans & by illustrations of the most important people & places mentioned in the diary.
