About this Item: Herbert Press, 1984. Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Plates & Illustrations (illustrator). Dust jacket complete. Brown cloth with bright gilt titles on spine. No ownership inscription. 144pp. Frontis plate. B/w plates and facsimiles. Includes essays by John Wain, W. W. Robson and David Fleeman. `Samuel Johnson', writes Sir William Rees- Mogg in the Preface to this book, `is one of the greatest of Englishmen. He is our greatest literary moralist in the way that Tolstoy is the greatest moralistof Russian literature. He is the greatest dictionary-maker in the history of the world and therefore the most important single figure in the history of the study of human language. H¢ is the greatest conversationalist in British history, so influential that some of the most successful modern television figures practise their art in terms of his conversational methods. He is Britain's greatest literary critic, a pragmatic critic who valued literature in terms of truth and reality. Johnson is also the greatest real personality in English literature. For comparison one has to .go across the boundary into fiction. Johnson is loved and his idiosyncrasies are remembered as is otherwise only true of Falstaff or Pickwick or perhaps Sherlock Holmes.' Samuel Johnson's death occurred in 1784, and this book is based on the catalogue for the commemorative bicentenary exhibition organized by The Arts Council of Great Britain. An introduction by K.K. Yung, Registrar of the National Portrait Gallery and formerly Curator of the Johnson Birthplace Museum, is followed by a stimulating essay (`Reason, Bias and Faith in the Mind of Johnson') by John Wain, probably Johnson's best-known biographer in recent times, and by contributions from Johnson scholars W.W. Robson (on 'Johnson as a Poet') and J.D. Fleeman (on the Dictionary). Approximately ioo illustrations, with lucid and extensive notes by K.K. Yung, present famous portraits, not only of Johnson himself, but also of many of his distinguished contemporaries, together with rarely-seen pages from first editions or early manuscripts and a range of other Johnsoniana from a wide variety of collections in the UK and USA. Size: 4to. Seller Inventory # 132078

About this Item: The Herbert Press, London, 1984. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. First Edition. This is a Near Fine Copy of this Book in a Near Fine Dust-Jacket,with NO chips or tears to the outer edges of the dust wrapper.Not price clipped.This copy was acquired from the impressive private library of Roy Ward Baker and this copy has his name to the front endpaper.Roy Ward Baker who started in the film industry as a tea boy and his first jobs were menial,but by 1938 he had risen to the level of as assistant director on Alfred Hitchcock's The Lady Vanishes (1938).He served in the Army during World War II, transferring to the Army Kinematograph Unit in 1943. One of his superiors at the time was novelist Eric Ambler who insisted on Baker being given his first big break directing The October Man, from an Ambler screenplay, in 1947.Ambler also adapted Walter Lord's A Night to Remember for Baker's 1958 screen version.His next two films, The Weaker Sex (1948) and Paper Orchid (1949) were popular but overshadowed by the success of Morning Departure (1950), also featuring John Mills.Morning Departure drew international attention to Baker's talent and prompted Darryl Zanuck, production head of 20th Century Fox,to invite him to Hollywood, though his first film for the company was made in the UK.During the early 1950s, Baker worked for three years at Fox where he directed Marilyn Monroe in Don't Bother to Knock (1952) and Robert Ryan in the 3D film noir Inferno (1953). He returned to the UK in 1953 and continued to work on films.He worked for television during the 1960s. He directed episodes of The Avengers, The Saint, The Persuaders! and The Champions all adventure series created with an eye on the American market.He directed, among others, Quatermass and the Pit (1967) The Vampire Lovers (1970) and Scars of Dracula (1970) for Hammer, and Asylum (1972) and The Vault of Horror (1973) for Amicus. He also directed Bette Davis in the black comedy The Anniversary (1968).In the latter part of the 1970s he returned to television, and throughout the 1980s continued to work on shows such as Minder. He retired in 1992.4to 144pp First Edition 1st Impression Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Seller Inventory # 58057

About this Item: Arts Council of Great Britain, London, first edition, 1984, 1984. Cloth, 4to, 24 cm, 144 pp, ills. From the introduction: ". this commemorative exhibition aims to show something of Johnson's versatility as a thinker and writer, and his profound humanity, which have attracted followers and admirers here and abroad. The story of the bookseller's son from Lichfield, awkward looking, half blind, without a degree, who, without any support, started his career in London as a Grub Street hack and became a 'literary colossus', is still more captivating if told in its proper sequence. The exhibition therefore follows roughly a chronological pattern, and is divided in eight sections of which the first seven concern his life, and the last some biographies by his contemporaries. It focuses on two main features: (i) his method and career as a writer, and (2) the principal portraits of him from life." Contents include: 1 Lichfield, Oxford, and the Midlands; 2 First years in London; 3 Lexicographer; 4 Widower; 5 Pension, Boswell, and The Club; 6 The Thrales and Streatham Park; 7 Last years; 8 Early biographies; Select Bibliography. Very Good in dustwrapper. Seller Inventory # ABE-36601
