Abstract

The diarist Samuel Pepys (1633-1703) was a book collector of note, amassing a library of 3,000 volumes that is still extant at Magdalene College, Cambridge. He also collected ‘frontispieces’; some 888 are listed in the Catalogue of the Pepys Library, Vol. III Prints and Drawings (1980). Pepys, like others at the time, did not differentiate between ‘frontispiece’ and engraved title-page; they lumped them together. Special Collections has 14 identified ‘frontispieces’ owned by Pepys. The 1653 Elzevir edition of Bacon is no. 36, described by him as ‘three male figures standing round a globe on a pedestal (with title).’
