Pepys and Evelyn are two pivotal Restoration figures and the most celebrated English diarists. They were also extraordinary men and close friends with shared interests: diary-keeping, science travel and a love of books. Pepys was earthy and shrewd, Evelyn a genteel aesthete but both were drawn to intellectual pursuits.Margaret Willes revisits the history of London and England at a time of regicide, revolution, fire and plague.
