Some years ago Arthur Bryant set out to reconstruct the life & times of Samuel Pepys from the vast collection of documents which this remarkable man left behind. He took over the papers of the two Pepysian scholars who had previously attempted this unfinished task, went thru the whole of the unpublished Pepys manuscripts in the Bodleian Library & used a number of previously unprinted passages from the diary.

The result is a work of which Sir Harold Nicolson wrote that it `will live as among the best of English biographies. This 1st volume tells the story of Pepys early work & the stranger one of his married life. Covering the years 1633-69, it records the Restoration of Charles II, the great plague & fire of London, an economic crisis & a European war. Tho a work of meticulous scholarship its as thrilling as any novel. Tho complete in itself, this book opens what is likely to remain the definitive biography of the Englishman who wrote the worlds greatest diary, established rules that still govern the British Admiralty & was the father of our Civil Service.
