I recently bought the 1668-9 volume of Sam’s diaries, in the usual HarperCollins / University of California Press edition of Latham & Matthews. Unfortunately, although it looks superficially identical, they recently seem to have changed the paper and printing and it looks much cheaper than all the previous volumes I’ve bought.
As I was making a more general point, and it’s not specifically about Pepys, I posted about it on my personal site, but I thought readers of Sam’s diaries might be interested too. I might look for a second-hand copy instead, just to complete the set!
