Description - Shorthand Letters of Samuel Pepys by Edwin Chappell
Originally published in 1933, this book presents the content of 56 shorthand, or partly shorthand, letters by Samuel Pepys, transcribed in full and edited by Edwin Chappell. The letters were derived from a volume entitled S. Pepys' Official Correspondence 1662-1679, which came into the possession of the National Maritime Museum in 1931, having been sold at auction by the Pepys-Cockerell family along with four other volumes of hitherto privately owned letters. The period covered is roughly that of the Second Dutch War, with the first letter dated as 20th September 1664 and the last 30th March 1668. Detailed notes are incorporated throughout and a list of works quoted is also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the correspondence of Pepys and British history.
