    Description
    The complete edition of the Diary of Samuel Pepys comprises eleven volumes - nine volumes of text and footnotes, a tenth volume of commentary and an eleventh volume of Index. Each of the first eight volumes contains one whole calendar year of the dairy, from January to December. The ninth volume runs from January 1668 to May 1969.

    The Diary was first published in abbreviated form in 1825. A succession of new editions, re-issues and selections, published in the Victorian era, made the diary one of the best-known books, and Pepys one of the best-known figures of English history. But in none of these versions, was there a reliable, still less a full text, and in none of them was there a commentary with any claim to completeness. This edition remains the first in which the entire diary is printed and in which an attempt has been made at systematic comment on it.
