Summary

Samuel Pepys (1633-1703) made a significant contribution to British history by his work as a naval administrator, and he bequeathed to Magdalen College, Cambridge its greatest treasure – his library, a unique collection of 3,000 books and manuscripts, still preserved as he left it. There are 250 volumes of manuscripts and these NRS volumes published selected documents from the collection.

This volume prints Pepys’s ‘Admiralty Journal‘, being the minutes of the Admiralty Commission of 1673-79, of which he was Secretary. They deal in detail with every aspect of the running of the Navy.
