Although Pepys had no maritime experience, he rose by patronage, hard work and his talent for administration, to be the Chief Secretary to the Admiralty under both King Charles II and subsequently King James II.His influence and reforms at the Admiralty were important in the early professionalisation of the Royal Navy.The detailed private diary Pepys kept from 1660 until 1669 was first published in the 19th century, and is one of the most important primary sources for the English Restoration period. It provides a combination of personal revelation and eyewitness accounts of great events, such as the Great Plague of London, the Second Dutch War and the Great Fire of London.

      Leningrad: Academia, 1927. First edition. Softcover. vg. Small octavo. 134pp. (2). Red and black illustrated wrappers with white lettering on the front cover. Pages uncut. The work (translated as "The Actor in American Cinema") is an academic and critical analysis of the American film industry, with a specific focus on actors, from a Soviet perspective.

Technical and structural innovations in the art form had been pioneered over the previous decade by numerous filmmakers worldwide, including many Soviet filmmakers such as Dziga Vertov and Sergei Eisenstein (the later of whom Trauberg worked under as assistant director), and became part of a larger ongoing discussion and debate on the purpose and philosophy of cinema. Wrappers with some light smudges and stains to covers, with minor rubbing to spine and corners. Light age toning to pages. Text in Russian. Protected by modern mylar. Wrappers and interior in overall very good condition. Scarce. Ilya Trauberg (Ilya Zakharovich Trauberg, December 13, 1905 - December 18, 1948), was a Ukrainian born Soviet film director. He work as assistant director on Sergei Eisenstein's acclaimed film "October: Ten Days That Shook the World" (1927) and was the younger brother of the famous Soviet filmmaker Leonid Trauberg. This work is rare: OCLC lists only four libraries worldwide that have this work.Part of a series: Artisty Ekrana, Seriia Knig o Kino-Akterakh i Rezhisserakh.

Four maps of London in the 1660s (originally used as end-papers- here bound in at end).

A fine copy, housed in a the original blue cloth slipcase. Samuel Pepys FRS, MP, JP, (23 February 1633-26 May 1703) was an English naval administrator and Member of Parliament who is now most famous for the diary he kept for a decade while still a relatively young man. Although Pepys had no maritime experience, he rose by patronage, hard work and his talent for administration, to be the Chief Secretary to the Admiralty under both King Charles II and subsequently King James II. His influence and reforms at the Admiralty were important in the early professionalisation of the Royal Navy. The detailed private diary Pepys kept from 1660 until 1669 was first published in the 19th century, and is one of the most important primary sources for the English Restoration period. It provides a combination of personal revelation and eyewitness accounts of great events, such as the Great Plague of London, the Second Dutch War and the Great Fire of London.
