Stephane, this was hilarious! While Pepys 1 seems the most probable one, I laughed myself sick on reading the others. You definitely have the same talent as RG.

I suppose 6d. is a fairly low price for books. Project Gutenberg says cooks and it seems a better guess. Can someone with LM edition clarify this?

Sam, when you don't look around, people can still see you. This looks like a toddler's covering his face with his hands and supposing he's invisible.

Terry, I know this is 4 years late and maybe somehow irrelevant, but I can parse your passage as follows:

"when, besides this business of his (Bruncker) ill words concerning his Majesty (Charles Stuart) in the business of the Chancellor (Edward Hyde), he (Duke of York) hath had, a long time, a mind to put him (Bruncker) away for his (Bruncker) ill offices, done between him (Bruncker) and his wife (Duchess of York)"

Sarah, being a Turk I can say that Ottoman Empire hasn't imposed its language, religion or way of living over the people of the lands they have conquered. Today you wouldn't meet many people speaking Turkish in Balkans or Middle East and they are mainly of Turkish descent. And come on, Turkish is a fascinating language once you get the hang of it :)
