The Life of Samuel Johnson, Comprehending an: BOSWELL, James.

Item Description: London: by Henry Baldwin for Charles Dilly, 1791, 1791. 2 volumes, quarto (271 × 212 mm). Contemporary tree calf, neatly rebacked with original spine laid down, spines ruled into compartments in gilt, red morocco labels, board edges gilt. Bookplate of Thomas Philip, 2nd Earl de Grey (17811859) to front pastedowns, modern bookplate to front free endpapers. A few dark marks and cracks to leather of spines, covers a little scuffed, wear to extremities, foxing to text block, 30 mm closed tear to quire Kkk vol. 1, 20 mm tear to quire Ppp vol. 1, small bit of loss to Sss vol. 1, 25 mm tear to quire Ttt vol. 2. Portrait frontispiece engraved by James Heath after Sir Joshua Reynolds, 2 engraved facsimile plates by H. Shepherd. First edition of the most famous biography in any language. This copy has p. 135, vol. 1, in the corrected state, reading "give". This is not an issue point for the whole book; some copies read "gve", but the correction was made in the press, and 1,750 copies with either state were available on publication day, 16 May 1791 (800 were sold in the first two weeks). Laid-in is a letter dated to 20 February 1930 to the later owner from Ben Abrahamson's Argus Book Shop in Chicago discussing the "give" issue point and explaining whether copies with "give constitute the first issue." The immense task of compiling the thousands of notes Boswell had recorded on "the great man's talk, habits and opinions" was begun after Johnson's death in 1784. Made up of trifling incidents as well as the significant events in Johnson's life, the work remains a masterpiece of portraiture. "Homer is not more decidedly the first of heroic poets, Shakespeare is not more decidedly the first of dramatists, Demosthenes is not more decidedly the first of orators, than Boswell is the first of biographers" (Macaulay). Boswell's reputation was further enhanced by the discovery in the early part of the 20th century of the Boswell Papers, which were stored in the Malahide Castle of Ireland for generations. What resulted from this discovery was the revelation of Boswell as an extraordinary personality in his own right; a far more complex, eccentric genius than the mere recorder of Johnson's conversations.
