RESTORES SUPPRESSED PORTIONS OF THE TEXT, in amount nearly one-fifth of the whole.
ESSRS CROSCUP & STERLING COMPANY announce for immediate
publication, in conjunction with the holders of the copyright, an
entirely new and unabridged edition of the Diary of Samuel Pepys, as edited by Mr. Wheatley, a work so well known through earlier, though incomplete editions to all lovers of curious and instructive books.
ILLUSTRATIONS of persons and places mentioned in the text will form a conspicuous and valuable feature. Of these there will be nearly sixty full page plates, inclusive of maps, plans, and facsimiles; gathered from the most authentic sources.
The work will be issued in 18 volumes, printed from a clear, Roman face type upon a superior laid, deckle-edge paper specially manufactured for the edition.
It will also contain, in addition to the Diary, a paper on the London of Pepys' time, a discriminating collection of what may be called Pepysiana, an exhaustive index, and a large amount of other interesting matter.
'HE severe morality of Evelyn, a contemporary Diarist, would have
suppressed much of what his friend set down without scruple or
comment, but the picture thus presented of the Court of Charles II. and of the manners of the time, would have been less lively and less true. We have no other book which gives so life-like a picture of that extraordinary state of society which fell under the author's observation, and it throws a most unexpected light upon the history and manners of his profligate age. Writing for himself alone, he chronicles with ludicrous naivete all the minutiæ of his domestic affairs, and of the dress, manners, and social amusements of the world he lived in. King, statesmen, courtiers, players, actually live again in his pages, and Pepys' own character-an interesting compound of shrewdness, vanity, worldly wisdom, and simplicity-infinitely enhances the piquancy of the revelations.
"This will hereafter be regarded as the only edition of Pepys, all others being but so many incomplete apologies for the real thing."- boston Courier. “This edition will necessarily supplant all former editions of this famous work.”
-N. Y. Home Journal. “Pepys was content to write himself down as he really was-time-server, snob, libertine, the average sensual man-and the result is a priceless human document that will be perused for all time."- Boston Beacon.
