Samuel Pepys and the Royal Navy by J. R. Tanner

First published in 1920 and originally delivered as the Lees Knowles Lectures in November 1919, this book looks at Pepys' legacy as a naval administrator. Respected Pepys scholar J. R. Tanner examines the ways in which Pepys applied business principles to various facets of naval organization, all while working under a king whose aversion to business-related matters was well known. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Pepys or the history of the British Navy.
