The Diary of Samuel Pepys (Part three 1667-1669) 2 x PRO-TAPES (audiobook) SEALED

Samuel Pepys FRS (/pps/ PEEPS;[1] 23 February 1633 – 26 May 1703) was an administrator of the navy of England and Member of Parliament
who is most famous for the diary he kept for a decade while still a
relatively young man. Pepys had no maritime experience, but he rose to
be the Chief Secretary to the Admiralty under both King Charles II and King James II through patronage, diligence, and his talent for administration. His influence and reforms at the Admiralty were important in the early professionalisation of the Royal Navy.[2]

The detailed private diary that Pepys kept from 1660 until 1669
was first published in the 19th century and is one of the most important
primary sources for the English Restoration period. It provides a combination of personal revelation and eyewitness accounts of great events, such as the Great Plague of London, the Second Dutch War, and the Great Fire of London.
