Samuel Pepys was the first Secretary to the Admiralty during the reign of Charles II, instrumental in developing the Royal Navy and witness to some of the most significant events of the Restoration period, including the Great Fire of London. His famous diary, which covers a period of some ten years, throws a frank and intimate light on a fascinating period, through the lens of a vigorous, intelligent and refreshingly candid and extrovert personality. This volume covers the third year of the diary. - Summary by Nicole Lee (6 hr 42 min)

Fascinating read

(5 stars)

a really fascinating insight into life in the Restoration. A pity that this is the last recorded.
