This is an auction for PARTICULAR FRIENDS: THE CORRESPONDENCE OF SAMUEL PEPYS AND JOHN EVELYN, edited by Guy de la Bedoyere.

"Mutual affection shines through."
- SUNDAY TELEGRAPH

Amazon.com review:

"Pepys and Evelyn first came to know each other during the Second Dutch War (1664-7) when, while the Plague decimated the London they both loved, they were preoccupied with the business of sick and wounded seamen. Nearly 40 years later they were still corresponding, but now exchanging details of remedies for the afflictions of old age. Their friendship, and their relations with others, as recorded in their famous diaries and letters, provide an exceptional opportunity to experience life at the heart of Restoration England and the late-17th century. This volume contains every letter which could be located. The full text is transcribed and annotated, and editorial problems are discussed. Many details of the lives and friendship of Pepys and Evelyn emerge which go unmentioned, or are barely alluded to, in the diaries."

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Guy de la Bedoyere holds degrees in history and archaeology from the Universities of Durham and London. He has also published an edition of Evelyn's Diary and a collection of pieces by Evelyn - The Writings of John Evelyn.
