Item Description: John Murray, London, 1831. First Crocker edition, 8vo, each volume with engraved frontispiece, plus the round-robin plate and a map of the Hebrides; contemporary half tan calf over marbled boards, maroon morocco labels on gilt-decorated spines; vol. 1 rebacked with old spine laid down; joints cracked on vols. 2-5 (cords holding, and in the case of vol. 5, barely holding), top of vol. 4 slightly chipped. This edition still stands as a monument of Johnsonian scholarship; but it was badly edited, much (and famously) condemned by Macaulay. Seeing the problem, Murray hastily engaged Wright to do a make-over and republished it in 1835. Pottle 91: The publication of this remarkable edition opens an entirely new era in the history of Boswell's book.". Bookseller Inventory # 25405
