This was a highly entertaining dramatisation of The Diaries of Samuel Pepys.

The Latham-Matthews transcription of Pepys’ Diary is one of the glories of contemporary English publishing. The pleasure of Pepys – of reading him – is his own pleasure in experienc. epys’ diary is the cheerful self-report, not of the man eminent in naval history, not of the historical witness, but of the unobjectionable hedonist. This was a highly entertaining dramatisation of The Diaries of Samuel Pepys. I listened to each episode when it was repeated by the BBC on Radio 4 Extra each day and enjoyed every minute. I will enjoy listening to it again and again in the future.

The first volume of the complete Diary of Samuel Pepys in its most authoritative and acclaimed edition. This complete edition of the Diary of Samuel Pepys comprises eleven volumes - nine volumes of text and footnotes (with an introduction of 120 pages in Volume I), a tenth volume of commentary (The Companion) and an eleventh volume of Index. Each of the first eight volumes contains one whole calendar year of the diary, from January to December. The ninth volume runs from January 1668 to May 1669. The Diary was first published in abbreviated form in 1825. A succession of new editions, re-issues and selections, published in the Victorian era, made the Diary one of the best-known books, and Pepys one of the best-known figures, of English history. But in none of these versions - not even in the Wheatley, which for long stood as the standard edition - was there a reliable, still less a full text, and in none of them was there a commentary with any claim to completeness. This edition was in preparation for many years, and remains the first in which the entire Diary is printed and in which an attempt has been made at systematic comment on it. The primary aim of the principal editors was to see that the Diary was presented in a manner suitable to the historical and literary importance of its contents. At the same time they had in mind the interests of the wide public of English-speaking people to whom the diarist himself, rather than the importance of what he wrote, is what matters.

This was a highly entertaining dramatisation of The Diaries of Samuel Pepys. I listened to each episode when it was repeated by the BBC on Radio 4 Extra each day and enjoyed every minute. I will enjoy listening to it again and again in the future. This production is an example of the BBC at its best.

There's not a better diary that's ever been written, in all the history of the recorded word. I don't know how to praise it enough.

Arrived in new condition. Lots of footnotes to aid in reading.

Ever since I found a circa 1950's diary in an old attic rummage sale on a vacation in Maine when I was about 8, I've been fascinated by old diaries. It also helps that I'm fascinated by history in general. So bring together great historical periods (ie the Great Fire of London) with diaries (and such honest ones as this are rare) and you have a classic. The language was a bit challenging at first - but like reading Shakespeare, if you just get used to it, it suddenly seems normal (reading it out loud also helped me get in the 17th century zone). It was interesting to see so much history witnessed by a normal person (albeit one of the upper class). His personal life was quite "colorful" too, which added some flavor to it, too. Definitely worth the effort.

A classic that is too often forgotten.

My second to favorite book. A wonderful look into London life in the 17th century.
Can it all really be true???

Excellent! Read it as a girl; am enjoying it more as an older adult. Fascinating history and personal details from someone who was there.
If you are a history buff, but like to be entertained a little bit this is absolutely wonderful! I read about it in another book of fiction! It was a great discovery for me.
