Item Description: Slipcase Container. Book Condition: Very Good. From about the age of thirty Johnson began the pattern of observancies and the composition of prayers which are registered in these notebooks (fourteen in all in facsimile). In December 1784, in the last weeks of his life, Johnson gave the manuscripts to the Rev. George Strahan with instructions for committing them to the press. Strahan took his task seriously, but did not conceive it his duty to publish a complete text. He censored passages in which Johnson expressed uncertainty or anxiety about his Christian belief. Strahan died in 1824 and the original manuscripts were deposited in the library of Pembroke College, Oxford in 1826. Size: 250x180mm. Bookseller Inventory # 18757s108
