It seems likely that Pepys had heard from Wanley of similar ones set up by Archbishop Matthew Parker in for his valuable library at Corpus Christi College in Cambridge and taken them partly as a model in order to safeguard his own in the future.

Heyworth, p. Parker had left elaborate instructions to ensure that the books should not be removed.

Many of the books in our collection have been out of print for decades, and therefore have not been accessible to the general public. The aim of our publishing program is to facilitate rapid access to this vast reservoir of literature, and our view is that this is a significant literary work, which deserves to be brought back into print after many decades. The contents of the vast majority of titles in the Classic Library have been scanned from the original works. To ensure a high quality product, each title has been meticulously hand curated by our staff.

Our philosophy has been guided by a desire to provide the reader with a book that is as close as possible to ownership of the original work. We hope that you will enjoy this wonderful classic work, and that for you it becomes an enriching experience. Product Details. When they wrote notes to each other, Pepys signed himself "Dapper Dickey", while Knep was " Barbry Allen " that popular song was an item in her musical repertory. The diary was written in one of the many standard forms of shorthand used in Pepys' time, in this case called tachygraphy and devised by Thomas Shelton.

It is clear from its content that it was written as a purely personal record of his life and not for publication, yet there are indications that Pepys took steps to preserve the bound manuscripts of his diary. He wrote it out in fair copy from rough notes, and he also had the loose pages bound into six volumes, catalogued them in his library with all his other books, and is likely to have suspected that eventually someone would find them interesting.

This tree resumes, in a more compact form and with a few additional details, trees published elsewhere in a box-like form. Pepys' health suffered from the long hours that he worked throughout the period of the diary. Specifically, he believed that his eyesight had been affected by his work. Pepys and his wife took a holiday to France and the Low Countries in June—October ; on their return, Elisabeth fell ill and died on 10 November Pepys never remarried, but he did have a long-term housekeeper named Mary Skinner who was assumed by many of his contemporaries to be his mistress and sometimes referred to as Mrs.

In he became an Elder Brother of Trinity House and served in this capacity until ; he was Master of Trinity House in — and again in — In he was involved with the establishment of the Royal Mathematical School at Christ's Hospital , which was to train 40 boys annually in navigation, for the benefit of the Royal Navy and the English Merchant Navy. In he was appointed a Governor of Christ's Hospital and for many years he took a close interest in its affairs.

Among his papers are two detailed memoranda on the administration of the school. In , after the successful conclusion of a seven-year campaign to get the master of the Mathematical School replaced by a man who knew more about the sea, he was rewarded for his service as a Governor by being made a Freeman of the City of London. He also served as Master without ever having been a Freeman or Liveryman of the Clothworkers' Company He was elected along with Sir Anthony Deane , a Harwich alderman and leading naval architect, to whom Pepys had been patron since By May of that year, they were under attack from their political enemies.

Pepys resigned as Secretary to the Admiralty. They were imprisoned in the Tower of London on suspicion of treasonable correspondence with France, specifically leaking naval intelligence. The charges are believed to have been fabricated under the direction of Anthony Ashley-Cooper, 1st Earl of Shaftesbury. They were released in July, but proceedings against them were not dropped until June Though he had resigned from the Tangier committee in , in he was sent to Tangier to assist Lord Dartmouth with the evacuation and abandonment of the English colony.

After six months' service, he travelled back through Spain accompanied by the naval engineer Edmund Dummer , returning to England after a particularly rough passage on 30 March The phantom Pepys Island , alleged to be near South Georgia , was named after him in , having been first "discovered" during his tenure at the Admiralty. From to , he was active not only as Secretary for the Admiralty, but also as MP for Harwich. He had been elected MP for Sandwich , but this election was contested and he immediately withdrew to Harwich.

When James fled the country at the end of , Pepys' career also came to an end. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in and served as its President from 1 December to 30 November Isaac Newton 's Principia Mathematica was published during this period, and its title page bears Pepys' name. There is a probability problem called the " Newton—Pepys problem " that arose out of correspondence between Newton and Pepys about whether one is more likely to roll at least one six with six dice or at least two sixes with twelve dice. He was imprisoned on suspicion of Jacobitism from May to July and again in June , but no charges were ever successfully brought against him.

After his release, he retired from public life at age He moved out of London ten years later to a house in Clapham owned by his friend William Hewer , who had begun his career working for Pepys in the admiralty. Pepys lived there until his death on 26 May He had no children and bequeathed his estate to his unmarried nephew John Jackson. Pepys had disinherited his nephew Samuel Jackson for marrying contrary to his wishes. Hewer was also childless and left his immense estate to his nephew Hewer Edgeley consisting mostly of the Clapham property, as well as lands in Clapham, London, Westminster and Norfolk on condition that the nephew and godson would adopt the surname Hewer.

On the death of Hewer Edgeley-Hewer in , the old Hewer estate went to Edgeley-Hewer's widow Elizabeth, who left the acre hectare estate to Levett Blackborne, the son of Abraham Blackborne, merchant of Clapham, and other family members, who later sold it off in lots. Lincoln's Inn barrister Levett Blackborne also later acted as attorney in legal scuffles for the heirs who had inherited the Pepys estate. Pepys was a lifelong bibliophile and carefully nurtured his large collection of books, manuscripts, and prints. At his death, there were more than 3, volumes, including the diary, all carefully catalogued and indexed; they form one of the most important surviving 17th-century private libraries.

The most important items in the Library are the six original bound manuscripts of Pepys' diary, but there are other remarkable holdings, including: [61]. Pepys made detailed provisions in his will for the preservation of his book collection. His nephew and heir John Jackson died in , when it was transferred intact to Magdalene College, Cambridge , where it can be seen in the Pepys Building. The bequest included all the original bookcases and his elaborate instructions that placement of the books "be strictly reviewed and, where found requiring it, more nicely adjusted".

Motivated by the publication of Evelyn's Diary , Lord Granville deciphered a few pages. He laboured at this task for three years, from to , unaware until nearly finished that a key to the shorthand system was stored in Pepys' library a few shelves above the diary volumes. Others had apparently succeeded in reading the diary earlier, perhaps knowing about the key, because a work of quotes from a passage of it. A second transcription, done with the benefit of the key, but often less accurately, was completed in by Mynors Bright and published in — Wheatley , drawing on both his predecessors, produced a new edition in [67] —, revised in , with extensive notes and an index.

All of these editions omitted passages chiefly about Pepys' sexual adventures which the editors thought too obscene ever to be printed. Wheatley, in the preface to his edition noted, "a few passages which cannot possibly be printed. It may be thought by some that these omissions are due to an unnecessary squeamishness, but it is not really so, and readers are therefore asked to have faith in the judgement of the editor.

Various single-volume abridgements of this text are also available. The Companion provides a long series of detailed essays about Pepys and his world. The first unabridged recording of the diary as an audiobook was published in by Naxos AudioBooks. On 1 January Phil Gyford started a weblog , pepysdiary.

Steve Coogan played Pepys. The film Stage Beauty concerns London theatre in the 17th century and is based on Jeffrey Hatcher 's play Compleat Female Stage Beauty , which in turn was inspired by a reference in Pepys' diary to the actor Edward Kynaston , who played female roles in the days when women were forbidden to appear on stage. Pepys is a character in the film and is portrayed as an ardent devotee of the theatre.

Hugh Bonneville plays Pepys.

Pepys has also been portrayed in various other film and television productions, played by diverse actors including Mervyn Johns , Michael Palin , Michael Graham Cox and Philip Jackson. BBC Radio 4 has broadcast serialised radio dramatisations of the diary. In the s it was performed as a Classic Serial starring Bill Nighy , [70] and in the s it was serialised as part of the Woman's Hour radio magazine programme. A fictionalised Pepys narrates the second chapter of Harry Turtledove 's science fiction novel A Different Flesh serialised —, book form This chapter is entitled "And So to Bed" and written in the form of entries from the Pepys diary.

The entries detail Pepys' encounter with American Homo erectus specimens imported to London as beasts of burden and his formation of the "transformational theory of life", thus causing evolutionary theory to gain a foothold in scientific thought in the 17th century rather than the 19th. Several detailed studies of Pepys' life are available. Arthur Bryant published his three-volume study in —, long before the definitive edition of the diary, but, thanks to Bryant's lively style, it is still of interest.

In Richard Ollard produced a new biography that drew on Latham's and Matthew's work on the text, benefitting from the author's deep knowledge of Restoration politics. The most recent general study is by Claire Tomalin , which won the Whitbread Book of the Year award, the judges calling it a "rich, thoughtful and deeply satisfying" account that unearths "a wealth of material about the uncharted life of Samuel Pepys".

In April , Pepys wrote, to his nephew Jackson, "It has been my calamity for much the greatest part of this time to have been kept bedrid, under an evil so rarely known as to have had it matter of universal surprise and with little less general opinion of its dangerousness; namely, that the cicatrice of a wound occasioned upon my cutting of the stone, without hearing anything of it in all this time, should after more than 40 years' perfect cure, break out again.
