III and the advertisement leaf in volume IV, the leaf of spine labels discarded as usual; extra-illustrated with 25 engraved portraits (pasted on the versos of the divisional title-pages), most being proofs before letters of those which appeared in the Works; contemporary mottled calf, joints and spines rubbed, lower cover of volume III almost detached.First separate edition of the biographical and critical prefaces which Johnson had contributed to the 68 volumes of the Works of the English Poets in 177981, a project commissioned by the long list of booksellers who appear as partners in the imprint here.'The second great work with which Johnson's name is now generally associated is The Lives of the Poets. It was the simplest in style and expression of all his literary labours, the subject appealed to every man of letters in the three kingdoms, and it abounded in anecdote and criticism . Much of the charm of The Lives . lies in the . reminiscences which Johnson embodied in them' (Courtney & Nichol Smith). It was his last major literary work.Fleeman 79.4LP/5; Courtney & Nichol Smith, pp. 129-42; Chapman & Hazen, p.159; Rothschild 1265; Liebert 105. Language: English. Bookseller Inventory # G1573

Trotter after Sir Joshua Reynolds, attractively bound in early nineteenth half calf, spines ornately gilt in compartments, red and olive morocco labels, marbled boards, discrete address stamp in blind on front free end-paper of first two volumes; joints very lightly rubbed, but generally a fine set. "The general tendency of Dr. Johnson's work is rather to diminish rather than exalt our writers; and he hath a kind of unreasonable dislike to some kinds of poetry, which do not coincide with his own turn of mind. Much as the world is disposed to submit to the Doctor's authority, it will not in every case bow down to his judgment" (Andrew Kippis in The New Annual Register, 1782. Fleeman 79.4/LP5. This is sometimes regarded as the first issue, with the printed labels in volume 4. See also, Stuart Bennett: Trade Bookbinding in the British Isles, page 87. Bookseller Inventory # 8752

Item Description: London for C. Bathurst, et al 1781, 1781. 4 volumes. The First London edition, first authorized edition, first separate edition. Portrait of Johnson by Joshua Reynolds as frontispiece in the first volume. 8vo, contemporary tree calf with gilt fillet lines surrounding the covers, the spines with plain calf backs. vii, 480; iii, 471; iii, 462; iii, 505. A very good, handsome and honest copy, rehinged incorporating the original spine panels and without labels, the text block clean and sound throughout. FIRST LONDON EDITION, FIRST AUTHORIZED EDITION, FIRST SEPARATE EDITION of this masterwork of literature. It took Johnson four years to write these lives, and much of their charm lies in the anecdotes and reminiscences which the author was able to provide. He spent much time in the company of men of letters and his retentive memory preserved many of the facts and criticisms which fell from their lips. The work, Johnson's last great labor, was suggested by the Martins at Edinburgh. "The first conception of the booksellers was to begin with the works of Chaucer, but that project was too vast for them, and the first author in their edition was Cowley. The diminution of the scheme is not greatly to be regretted. The poets before Cowley were not so well know to Johnson, and he had no special information on their lives" (Courtney and Smith, p. 130).
