This book examines the full ledger of the receipts and expenditures of seventeenth-century English diarist Samuel Pepys - a record of eight find one-half years of his recorded professional and social activities, and thus, an understanding of his world, and that of an ambitious member of the seventeenth-century London upper middle class. The records of monies received in the form of wages, commissions, gifts and gratuities, investments, interest from loans, display the social rise of Pepys, and the records of his living expenses, reveal the cost of life and enjoyment in London during those years.
