The text used for this website comes from the 1893 edition of the diary edited by Henry B. Wheatley. This version of the diary is missing some passages and the few footnotes it contains are somewhat erratic and Victorian.

It is available free from Project Gutenberg as a single file (http://www.gutenberg.net/browse/BIBREC/BR4200.HTM ) or broken down into smaller volumes:

1660: http://www.gutenberg.net/browse/BIBREC/BR4125.HTM (includes introduction)

The most complete version of the diaries is only available in book form, by Robert Latham and William Matthews (often abbreviated to "L&M" on this site), published in the 1970s. There are nine volumes of the diary (with extensive footnotes), a companion volume of background information and an exhaustive index to the entire diary:

Reading books on Google Print

There have been comments by several annotators about the difficulties with Google Print. To solve these problems, use the following (perfectly legal) procedure:

*To get access to all books on Google print*

Link to:
http://books.google.com/intl/nl/googlebooks/pub...

Click on the log-in button at the bottomo the page, and go through the procedure to obtain an ID.
(This link is sometimes unavailable, probably due to an overcrowded server.)

*To get access to the Pepys Companion Volume*

Link to:
http://books.google.com/books?ie=UTF-8&hl=nl&id...

Use the link to obtain an ID. This is a very simple procedure: all you have to do is to fill in your email address, and a password of your own choice (write it down somewhere!). After that, you will have access to (almost) all the pages of the Companion, using the search button on top of the page to search for any name, place or anything else.

You will also be able to use this ID & password at any later date to get access to the Companion -- it might be a good idea to save the above link to you favourites, so that you can link to the log-in page easily...

The images are definitely worth a look.
There's an imposing picture of Sam with his wig.
