Very Good+ Binding and contents are almost like new.; 8-3/4" Tall, 159pp. Black cloth, bright gold lettering. BELLES LETTRES. "Biographies or lives, for the purposes of this study, are those writings which attempt to deal with Johnson's life, including his birth and early years, in some way, however slight...We have excluded those lives published before 1784 on the grounds that they are, for the most part, mere recitals of facts which eventually found their way into later biographies, and that they offer no meaningful attitudes about Johnson...As our essay reveals, the biographers borrowed heavily from one another and drew, no doubt, on a body of biographical information which must have had a history of oral transmission....These lives, taken together, convey two dominant images of Johnson: as writer and as moralist.
