Overview

This volume consists primarily of a descriptive catalogue of the threealbums which Pepys entitled 'My Collection of Heads in Taille-Douce& Drawings...' (2978-2980), put together, according to the title-page, in 1700, three years before he died. To this has been added a catalogue of the much larger number of portraits to be found elsewhere in the Library, principally in the printed books. For convenience of reference this stray material has been conflated with the subject index of the albums. In this way all portraits in the Library are catalogued without obscuring the principles on which the albums were designed.ERIC CHAMBERLAIN was formerly keeper of prints at the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge.
