Book Description McGraw-Hill Publishing Company, New York, NY, 1953. Paperback. Very Good+ to Near Fine in Wraps: shows only the most minute indications of use: just a hint of wear to the extremities; the mildest rubbing to the panels; the prices have been neatly blocked out at the front panel and the bottom of the backstrip; Sparse, very faint smudging to the outside edges. The binding leans ever so slightly, but remains perfectly secure; the text is clean. Free of any creases. Free of any ownership names, dates, addresses, notations, inscriptions, stamps, plates, or labels. A handsome, nearly-new copy, structurally sound and tighly bound, showing only very mild wear. No longer quite pristine, but remains very close to 'As New. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. xxv, 356 pages. Edited by Frederick A. Pottle. Frontispiece Maps. Sparsely illustrated in black & white. The First Edition was published in hardcover by Yale University Press in 1928. Trade Paperback. James Boswell, 9th Laird of Auchinleck (29 October 1740 19 May 1795) was a lawyer, diarist, and author born in Edinburgh, Scotland. He is best known for the biography he wrote of one of his contemporaries, the English literary figure Samuel Johnson, which the modern Johnsonian critic Harold Bloom has claimed is the greatest biography written in the English language. Boswell's surname has passed into the English language as a term (Boswell, Boswellian, Boswellism) for a constant companion and observer, especially one who records those observations in print. In A Scandal in Bohemia, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's character Sherlock Holmes affectionately says of Dr. Watson, who narrates the tales, "I am lost without my Boswell." Boswell married his cousin, Margaret Montgomerie, in November 1769. She remained faithful to Boswell, despite his frequent liaisons with prostitutes, until her death from tuberculosis in 1789. After his infidelities, he would deliver tearful apologies to her and beg her forgiveness, before again promising her, and himself, that he would reform. James and Margaret had four sons and three daughters. Two sons died in infancy; the other two were Alexander (17751822) and James (17781822). Their daughters were Veronica (17731795), Euphemia (1774-ca. 1834) and Elizabeth, known as 'Betsy', (17801814). Boswell also had at least two extramarital children, Charles (17621764) and Sally (17671768?). Despite his relative literary success with accounts of his European travels, Boswell was only a moderately successful advocate, with the exception of the copyright infringement case of Donaldson v Beckett where Boswell represented the Scottish bookseller, Alexander Donaldson. Throughout his life, from childhood until death, he was beset by severe swings of mood. His depressions frequently encouraged, and were exacerbated by, his various vices. His happier periods usually saw him relatively vice-free. His character mixed a superficial Enlightenment sensibility for reason and taste with a genuine and somewhat romantic love of the sublime and a propensity for occasionally puerile whimsy. The latter, along with his tendency for drink and other vices, caused many contemporaries and later observers to regard him as being too lightweight to be an equal in the literary crowd that he wanted to be a part of. However, his humour and innocent good nature won him many lifelong friends.Boswell was a frequent guest of Lord Monboddo at Monboddo House, a setting where he gathered significant observations for his writings by association with Samuel Johnson, Lord Kames and other luminaries. In the 1920s a great part of Boswell's private papers, including intimate journals for much of his life, were discovered at Malahide Castle, north of Dublin. These provide a hugely revealing insight into the life and thoughts of the man. They were sold to the American collector Ralph H. Isham and have since passed to Yale University, which has published general and scholarly editions of his journals and correspondence. A second cache was discovered soon after and.
