Item Description: Printed by W. Strahan for J. & P. Knapton, T. & T. Longman, C. Hitch & L. Hawes, A. Millar, and R. & J. Dodsley, London, 1755. 2 volumes, folio. (16 3/8 x 9 3/4 inches). Titles in red and black, all but the preface set in two columns. Expertly bound to style in half 18th century russia over contemporary marbled paper covered boards, spines with raised bands in seven compartments, ruled in gilt on either side of each band, red and black morocco lettering pieces in the second and third compartments First edition of Johnson's Dictionary. This work has at various times been called "the most important British cultural monument of the eighteenth century" (Hitchings); "the only dictionary [of the English language] compiled by a writer of the first rank " (Robert Burchfield) and first genuinely descriptive dictionary in any language. "Johnson's writings had, in philology, the effect which Newton's discoveries had in mathematics" (Webster). "It is the fate of those that toil at the lower employments of life, to be rather driven by the fear of evil, than attracted by the prospect of good; to be . punished for neglect, where success would have been without applause, and diligence without reward. Among these unhappy mortals is the writer of dictionaries . Every other author may aspire to praise; the lexicographer can only hope to escape reproach" (Johnson, preface to the present work). Samuel Johnson's monumental work, which drew on all the best ideas and aspects of earlier dictionaries, was published on April 15, 1755 in an edition of 2000 copies. The price was a high one £4 10s, or £3 10s to the trade. The group of publishers whose names appear in the imprint were joint proprietors, having paid Johnson £1575 in installments for copy which took him eight years to complete, although in the final months publication was held back for the granting of his Oxford M.A. (Feb. 20, 1755). Some of Johnson's advance was used to rent the well-known house in 17 Gough Square, where the garret became his "dictionary work-shop." He called on the assistance of six amanuenses, five of whom, Boswell proudly records, were Scotsmen, and who were almost derelict when he hired them. "With no real library at hand, Johnson wrote the definitions of over 40,000 words.illustrating the senses in which these words could be used by including about 114,000 quotations drawn from English writing in every field of learning during the two centuries from the middle of the Elizabethan period down to his own time" (W. Jackson Bate, Samuel Johnson (New York, 1977), p.247. "It is the dictionary itself which justifies Noah Webster's statement that Johnson's writings had, in philology, the effect which Newton's discoveries had in mathematics. Johnson introduced into English lexicography principles which had already been accepted in Europe but were quite novel in mid-eighteenth-century England. He codified the spelling of English words; he gave full and lucid definitions of their meanings (often entertainingly colored by his High Church and Tory propensities); and he adduced extensive and apt illustrations from a wide range of authoritative writers.but despite the progress made during the past two centuries in historical and comparative philology, Johnson's book may still be consulted for instruction as well as pleasure" (PMM). The Dictionary was issued with two titlepages, identifying the volumes as "I" and "II," and is usually divided between the letters "K" and "L," as here. Although Fleeman estimates that "more than half" of the 2000 copies survive, their condition is extremely variable. The great weight of the work ensured that when standing upright and even when stoutly bound, the covers were likely to detach with time. Once the covers were loose, damage to the titles and the other outer leaves was almost inevitable. Courtney & Smith p. 54; Chapman & Hazen p. 137; Fleeman Bibliography I, p.410; Grolier English 50; cf. H. Hitchings Defining the World (ref.); PMM 201; Rothschild 1237; Slade & Kolb Johnson's Dictionary pp.105-113; cf. William B. Todd 'Variants in Johnson's Dictionary, 1755', pp.212-3 in The Book Collecto. Bookseller Inventory # 26355

Item Description: London: Printed by W. Strahan, 1755., 1755. FIRST EDITIONS. 2 volumes; Folio. Complete. Titles in red and green labels. Original speckled tan calf with marbled endpapers, all edges flecked in red, expertly respined to style by Trevor Lloyd Bindery, subtle repairs to corners. A beautiful, sympathetic binding which employs a style of decoration that is handsome and highly appropriate. Vol 1: internally clean with neat ink initials 'JH' [Sir Joseph Hawley] to first blank, soft horizontal crease and tiny (3mm) edgetear to title; Vol 2: internally clean but for faint spotting to first and final leaves, some soft folds to corners, neat soft vertical crease to title, minute repair to very tips of corners of same, marginal (later) ownership also. This is an attractive and complete copy of this cornerstone of the English language. Dr. Johnson performed with his dictionary the most amazing, enduring and endearing one-man feat in the field of lexicography. Provenance: Sir Joseph Henry Hawley (1814-1875), High Sheriff of Kent and race horse breeder, with the armorial bookplate of the Hawley Baronets to each volume. Later (indistinct) ownership to volume II, dated 1884. Adam Smith in one of the earliest reviews of the book in the 'Edinburgh Review' 1755, compared it favourably with the best international dictionaries of modern languages then available, those of the French Academy and those of the Accademiadella Crusca, both of which 'were composed by a numerous society of learned men and took up a longer time in the composition than the life of a single person could have well afforded'; whereas the English dictionary was 'the work of a single person and composed in a period of time very inconsiderable when compared with the extent of the work'. In fact, it took Johnson less than ten years from writing his first prospectus in 1746 to publication day, 14th June 1755, when the two folios went on sale at £4.10s. The dictionary was originally the project of a group of publishers and booksellers and the great Scottish printer William Strahan. They recognised that the time was ripe to bring to fruition the idea of a standard English dictionary which the Royal Society had entertained as far back as 1644. In that year it appointed a committee for the improvement of the English language, for which John Evelyn, after a visit to Florence, wrote a report on the activities of the Crusca in 1655. Johnson's Dictionary is divided into four parts: the preface, in which he expounds the aims and problems of lexicography; a history and a grammar of the English language, both sections being of interest only in that they show the vast ignorance of eighteenth century philologists before Sir William Jones and his successors in this field; and finally the dictionary proper. The preface ranks among Johnson's finest writings; the history and the grammar, which did not interest him in the least, are dull rehashes of older compilations. It is the dictionary itself which justifies Noah Webster's statement that 'Johnson's writing had, in philology, the effect which Newton's discoveries had in mathematics'. Johnson introduced into English lexicography principles which had already been accepted in Europe but which were quite novel in mid-eighteenth-century England. He codified the spelling of English words; he gave full and lucid definitions of their meanings (often entertainingly coloured by his High Church and Tory propensities); and he adduced extensive and apt illustrations from a wide range of authoritative writers. In the field of English lexicography Johnson's greatest followers were the American, Webster, and the compilers of the 'Oxford English Dictionary'' but despite the progress of the past two centuries in historical and comparative philology, Johnson's book may still be consulted for instruction as well as pleasure. [ From: PRINTING IN THE MIND OF MAN 201] The words which Johnson included in his dictionary were mostly obtained from the dictionaries of his predecessors. Others were added 'by fortuitous.

Item Description: CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2005. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Facsimile. 328 x 249 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. This edition makes available for the first time the largest collection of unpublished material by the great eighteenth-century writer and lexicographer Samuel Johnson in existence. For the revised fourth edition (1773) of Johnson s Dictionary of the English Language, Johnson and his amanuensis annotated over one hundred and twenty interleaved folio pages of the first edition, but the printer for unknown reasons failed to include the corrections. These pages, including hundreds of authorial additions and changes to the text, are reproduced here in facsimile, along with a transcription, an extensive commentary and notes. This extraordinary archive offers a unique record of Johnson s methods of revision, his collaboration with his assistants, and the preparation of printer s copy in general. Johnson s deletion and editing of hundreds of new quotations, notes, and definitions contributed by others sheds much new light on his intentions for his work and his attitudes towards language and literature.

Item Description: CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2005. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Facsimile. 328 x 249 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. This edition makes available for the first time the largest collection of unpublished material by the great eighteenth-century writer and lexicographer Samuel Johnson in existence. For the revised fourth edition (1773) of Johnson s Dictionary of the English Language, Johnson and his amanuensis annotated over one hundred and twenty interleaved folio pages of the first edition, but the printer for unknown reasons failed to include the corrections. These pages, including hundreds of authorial additions and changes to the text, are reproduced here in facsimile, along with a transcription, an extensive commentary and notes. This extraordinary archive offers a unique record of Johnson s methods of revision, his collaboration with his assistants, and the preparation of printer s copy in general. Johnson s deletion and editing of hundreds of new quotations, notes, and definitions contributed by others sheds much new light on his intentions for his work and his attitudes towards language and literature.
