Product Description

Book Description

Abridged, with an Introduction, by Bergen Evans, The Powell-Hill text --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

Notoriously and self-confessedly intemperate, Boswell shared with Johnson a huge appetite for life and threw equal energy into recording its every aspect in minute but telling detail. This irrepressible Scotsman was 'always studying human nature and making experiments', and the marvelously vivacious Journals he wrote daily furnished him with first-rate material when he came to write his biography.

Everybody knows some of Dr Johnson's pithy sayings. It's worthwhile sitting down and reading the complete collection at some time in your life, I'm just sorry I didn't get round to it sooner...
