This is an auction for THE ILLUSTRATED PEPYS: EXTRACTS FROM THE DIARY, by Robert Latham. reviews:

"Samuel Pepys's diary has long been recognized as one of the most remarkable in the English language, but it has been impossible until recent times to print it as he wrote it. Little academic work had been done on it and legal restrictions prevented the publication of its frankest passages in which Pepys describes his vigorous love life. In the pages reproduced here, the public events of the 1660s - the politics of the Restoration, the Dutch War, the Plague, the Great Fire of London - are interwoven with a diverting account of Pepys colourful private life."

"FIVE STARS!!! It is a pleasure to be able, after a suitable time period - aided by "increasing maturity" - to reread Pepys, and the researcher and indeed, Pepys official librarian, Robert Latham presents an admirable selection of edited extracts in this, the illustrated, version of the main diaries of 1660 to 1669. As the editor remarks, it is a great pity that Samuel never resumed his daily journals in the following years as it was that later period that saw the deposing of his King and the "Glorious Revolution" of 1688. It would have been, Latham said "one of the most important books never written." Certainly, with Samuel Pepys as the author, it would have been personal, witty and more than a little "saucy"!"

"FIVE STARS! This is the best, easiest to understand of all the Pepys' writings I have read. The illustrations are very well done. PS. It's pronounced 'peeps'."
