Product description


'This book is an essential addition to any serious collection in the field of English studies or bibliography.' Rare Books Newsletter

'The Dictionary owes not all but most of the attention that it receives to the fact that it is Johnson's, one more work to be read for evidence of his peculiarities, hobby horses, and strengths or weaknesses. It is good to find the Dictionary investigated and discussed here for itself, as a book - a hugely influential work of reference that can be seen in other contexts besides the biographical. … The effect of the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, for each paper offers access to a way of thinking and to a range of sources that may be new to the exclusively literary, bibliographical, or lexicographical reader.' The Times Literary Supplement

Book Description

To commemorate the 250th anniversary of the publication of Samuel Johnson's Dictionary, this volume brings together fourteen original essays by international scholars of literature, lexicology, linguistics and bibliography. These essays present fresh scholarship on the Dictionary and open up novel perspectives and directions for future research.
