About this Item

First edition of the first and most important revision of Johnson, 4 volumes, 4to, engraved portrait of Johnson after Reynolds, old marbled boards rebacked and retipped in green morocco, gilt lettering direct on spines; old bookbinder's tickets of William Strong, Bristol; lettering on spines a little uneven, else very good and sound. "Todd made some additions to Johnson's grammar and history of language, extended Johnson's word-list with obsolete and local terms and with derivatives and compounds, improved etymologies, added quotations where they were lacking and corrected some of those which had been given, but left the famous definitions pretty much unchanged" (Sledd & Kolb, p. 154). Courtney & Smith, p. 59; Vancil, p. 126. Bookseller Inventory # 23168
