£25.00

Product description

Samuel Pepys: The Unequalled Self by Claire Tomalin - Signed

"A full-scale biography of naval administrator Samuel Pepys, who was well-known for being the friend of the famous and powerful. This text, which draws on Pepys' own personal diary, covers his childhood and young adulthood. It moves through the famous diary years and beyond, to the death of his wife and the setting up of a new household. While using the diary as a source, the author goes beyond its narrative to the inner man, at the same time revealing life as a young man in Restoration London. Explored within are Pepys' relations with women, his fears and ambitions, his political shifts and his agonies and delights."

This copy is in good condition, with several black-and-white illustrations. There is a fair amount of fading but the inner pages are clean and unmarked. The author has inscribed the title page in black ink.
