The life, career, and world of Samuel Pepys, lavishly illustrated and published to coincide with an exhibition at the National Maritime MuseumSamuel Pepys (1633–1703) lived through one of the most exciting and troubled periods in English history. He saw the people rise up in the name of liberty and execute their king. During the plague of 1665 he endured months of terror, and the following year he witnessed the Great Fire of London. Toward the end of his life, Pepys―and the country―suffered further upheaval when his patron, the Catholic James II, was ousted by the Protestant William III and Queen Mary in the “Glorious Revolution” of 1688.

Book Description Thames Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 2016. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This book, published to coincide with a major exhibition at the National Maritime Museum to mark the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire of London, centres on Samuel Pepys (1633-1703), the famous diarist and the greatest administrator of the Stuart Age. Not only a passionate diarist, Pepys was also a prolific correspondent who lived through and wrote about all the key events and leading individuals of his time: the Restoration of Charles II, the Great Plague, the Fire of London, the raid of the Dutch fleet in the river Medway, the King s mistresses. Through a series of essays by leading experts, this publication reveals the rich diversity of his career and interests - from the theatre, to advances in science and development of the Royal Navy. His life was so utterly entwined with the extraordinary period he lived through - he was even a witness to the beheading of Charles I - that the book becomes a portrait of the age. Each chapter has two or three essays followed by discussion of specific objects and paintings. Bookseller Inventory # AA29780500518144
