Biography of Samuel Pepys.
Contains four illustrations and two maps
The life of Pepys presents a unique opportunity to the biographer.
It is not unusual for a prudent man of affairs who has reached a great place to leave behind some record of his public life,and this Pepys, in his Memoirs of The Royal Navy, his collections of sea manuscripts,and his vast official correspondence,was careful to do.
What is so singular is that this successful man of affairs should have also kept a record of his most recent thoughts and actions which is at once a literary masterpiece and a physcological revelation more profound than that of any novel.
From this journal covering nearly ten tears of his earlier life, he excluded no admission.
