A Life

Book - 2001 | 1st Palgrave ed.
Rate this:
Best known for diaries that chronicle in brilliant detail his life and times during the turbulence of Restoration England, Samuel Pepys was an extraordinary man in an extraordinary time--member of Parliament, secretary of the admiralty, political insider, friend of Isaac Newton and Christopher Wren. Set against such events as the Great Fire of London, the Great Plague, and the return of Charles II to the throne, Stephen Coote's full-bodied portrait of Pepys brings the man, and his remarkable era, exuberantly to life.
