About this Item

thick 8vo. cloth. (iv), vii-viii, v-viii, 186, 117-166 pages. By R.W. Chapman with the Collaboration of Allen T. Hazen. As any Johnsonian scholar or collector knows, Courtney and Smith's indispensable bibliography of Johnson is a hard book to find. Now it is readily available once again and in a new format which brings together, for the first time, the work of four distinguished Johnsonian bibliographers. This book is a reprint of the 1925 edition of Courtney and Smith which had the facsimiles of title pages. To this has been added the preface of the 1915 edition, which did not appear in either the 1925 reissue or 1968 reprint. In 1939 Chapman and Hazen's comprehensive supplement to this bibliography appeared: Johnsonian Bibliography, A Supplement to Courtney; this is reprinted in full. Officially authorized by the Oxford University Press and Oxford Bibliographical Society, this volume is the best bibliographical tool on Samuel Johnson currently available.
