About this Item

Second edition, the first in octavo, 3 volumes, pp. [2], xviii, [xvii]-[xl], [*i]-*xxxvi, [2],603; [2], 634; [2], 711; frontispiece portrait, folding "Round Robin" plate, folding facsimile of Johnson's handwriting; full contemporary tree calf, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, red and black morocco labels; rear joints on vols. 1 and 2 cracked, front joint on vol. 3 starting; the bindings remain firm and all in all this is a handsome, unrestored set. This copy has the extra leaf *c3 in volume one with "additional corrections" and all the misprints identified by Rothschild, with the exception that page 408 of volume three is printed incorrectly. "The text of the second editionÉ deserves a close study. Although we believe that the third represents the form in which Boswell would ultimately have arranged [the] supplementary material, we can never be sure of it, for this edition was the last actually published in his lifetime. There were also many pleasant and characteristic sentences introduced in this edition which naturally dropped out when the text was shaken together by Malone" Pottle 81. Rothschild 468.
