Catalogue of the Pepys Library at Magdalene College

Supplementary Series II Collections 1

Edited by C.S. Knighton

The first full listing of the pamphlets, tracts and other material collected by Samuel Pepys under the headings Maritime, Political and Religious.
Samuel Pepys's unique collection of 3000 books has been, as he directed, preserved intact at his old Cambridge college since 1724. Its various facets were not widely appreciated until the publication between 1978 and 1994 of a complete catalogue under the editorship of Robert Latham. The present volume presents a detailed conspectus of the Collections, pamphlets bound up as books. There are five such 'collections' in the Pepys Library, which are catalogued only as volumes containing a number of items on the same subject. This is a full listing of the pamphlets, tracts and other material in each of these bound collections, information which is otherwise unavailable except in the library's own archive. The collections are Maritime, Political and Religious in the present volume. Those entitled Popular, Dramatic, Shorthand, Almanacs and General will be in the second volume.

An e-book version of this title is available (9781787442429), to libraries through a number of trusted suppliers. See here for a full list of our partners.
