Robert Latham, cbe, ma, fba – Fellow and Pepys Librarian, Magdalene College, Cambridge, and formerly reader in History, Royal Holloway College, University of London.
William Matthews, ma, ph.d, d.lett – Late Professor of English, University of California, Los Angeles, and Fellow of Birkbeck College, University of London.Review:
‘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 experience... Pepys’ diary is the cheerful self-report, not of the man eminent in naval history, not of the historical witness, but of the unobjectionable hedonist.’
‘Here, in one of the finest feats in all the long history of scholarship, is Pepys’ Diary, once and for all. Exegi monumentum aere perennius.’
‘The editors have achieved the impossible... one can now read the Diary perfectly easily, month by month, year by year... here at last is a really learned edtiion where the learning is put at the disposal of the layman.’
‘It isn’t often that one encounters a publication – especially of this magnitude – which achieves complete perfection, but there is no doubt that this does.’
Sir Arthur Bryant
