Product description

Published in 1791, Boswell's "Life of Johnson" exposes one of the most gigantic figures of English literature with unparalleled closeness and originality. He succeeded in portraying Johnson's life through lively conversations with Johnson that reflected his abundant humor and deep insight. This work details Johnson's prolific years in London, where he gained popularity as a writer, and is considered to be one of the greatest biographies ever written. This edition was published in 1914 and includes an introduction by Mowbray Morris. Bound in dark green cloth with a gilt vignette on the front and embossed title on the spine (faded gilt).
