product image
Published to coincide with an exhibition at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, UK, this engaging portrait explores the public and personal worlds of Pepys, not only a famous diarist whose description of the Fire of London is unequaled but also an energetic and talented man who rose from modest beginnings to become the greatest naval administrator of the age.

An introduction by Pepys's award-winning biographer, Claire Tomalin, engaging essays on every aspect of his life and world, and illustrations that include a rich variety of paintings, engravings, and objects make this an unprecedented look at a remarkable man.
