Samuel Pepys and the World He Lived In by Henry B. Wheatley

Excerpt from the Preface:
"I have endeavoured in the following pages to draw together some of the most interesting incidents of the "Diary" relating both to Pepys's life and to the manners of his time, and also to illustrate them from other sources. I have used the best edition of the "Diary," by the Rev. Mynors Bright; but in order that this book may form a companion to all editions I have referred to the date of the entries rather than to the volume and page. It must therefore be understood that the passages referred to when not met with in the other editions will be found among the hitherto unpublished matter of that of Mr. Bright. It has been my endeavour to illustrate the contents of this entertaining work more completely than has previously been attempted, and several of the circumstances of Pepys's life are here brought prominently forward for the first time."
