[light browning/soiling to page edges; jacket very mildly wrinkling at top of edge of front panel]. "In this intriguing survey of published diaries, [the author] describes the backgrounds and careers of over fifty men and women who in their journals wrote both for and about themselves, without attempting to present themselves in a favourable light for posterity." Among his subjects are Samuel Pepys, James Boswell, Arnold Bennett, Virginia Woolf, Mary Shelley and Queen Victoria.
