Abstract

The intertwined initials of Walter Henry Whitear make up this aesthetically pleasing bookplate from a volume about Samuel Pepys’ contemporary and friend, Sir Stephen Fox (1627-1716).
As can be seen, the book was gifted to Whitear from a ‘W.M. Chute’ in ‘March 1897’. Perhaps this gift is what prompted Whitear to pursue his research of Samuel Pepys that culminated in the publication of his More Pepysiana. Notes on the Diary of Samuel Pepys, published in 1927. Not much is known about Whitear except he was a member of the Royal Historical Society and lived in Chiswick, West London.
