Boswell was tireless in his search for authenticated proof, and his training as a lawyer helped him sift the evidence of friends and to operate forensically on Johnson himself.

Amazing value

by Boojieboy on Jun 10, 2010

Beautiful Everyman Library edition. Green cloth-bound octavo size with sewn-in signature binding. Page count of 1000+ permits type-face large enough for easy reading. For a book selling at around $20, it's an amazing value. More
