9781440091148: Boswell's Life of Johnson: Including Boswell's Journal of a Tour of the Hebrides, and Johnson's Diary of a Journal Into North Wales, Vol. 5 (Classic Reprint)
Présentation de l'éditeur :

My dear Sir, In every narrative, whether historical or biographical, authenticity is of the utmost consequence .O fthis I have ever been so firmly persuaded, that I inscribed a former work to that person who was the best judge of its truth. I need not tell you I mean General Paoli; who, after his great, though unsuccessful, efforts to preserve the liberties of his country, has found an honourable asylum in Britain, where he has now lived many years the object of Royal regard and private respect; and whom I cannot name without expressing my very grateful sense of the uniform kindness which he has been pleased to shew me. The friends of Doctor Johnson can best judge, from internal evidence, whether the numerous conversations which form the most valuable part of the ensuing pages are correctly related. To them, therefore, I wish to appeal, for the accuracy of the portrait here exhibited to the world. As one of those who were intimately acquainted with him, you have a title to this address. You have obligingly taken the trouble to peruse the original manuscript of this See atite, ii. 497, note i, and iii. 237. His Account of Corsica, published in .1768. Horace Walpole wrote on Nov.6, 1769 L etters, v.200): I found Paoli last week at Court. The King and Queen both took great notice of him. He has just made a tour to Bath, Oxford, c., and was everywhere received with much distinction. See ante, ii. 81. Boswell, when in London, was his constant guest. A nte, iii. 40.

Description du livre Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. État : New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from The Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides: With Samuel Johnson, L. L. D The Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides was the first portion of his Life of Dr. Johnson that Mr. Boswell gave to the public. It appeared in the autumn of 1785, about nine months after the death of Johnson, and two editions were exhausted within a twelvemonth. A third was issued in August, 1786, and this was the last which the author lived to revise. His death, unexpected by his friends, and the subject of universal regret, says his affectionate literary associate, Malone, took place on the 19th of May, 1795. The Journal could hardly fail to gain immediate popularity. Both the subject and the plan of the Work were attractive. No author, perhaps, ever stood higher with his contemporaries, or was regarded with greater interest as a man, than Johnson. His writings were in all hands, and his Dictionary was looked upon as a national triumph. Garrick s epigram, that one Englishman had, in the contest for philological honours, beat forty Frenchmen, was the key-note to a whole chorus of acclamations. Then, the personal character and peculiarities of Johnson - his sturdy independence, his strong prejudices, his dogmatism, his unrivalled dexterity and power in argument, his very figure, as Boswell has observed, were all, more or less, known to the great mass of readers, from the Land s-End to the Hebrides. Fragments of his conversation, including some of his weighty and pungent remarks, his witty sarcasms and lively personal sallies, had got abroad, and public curiosity was strongly excited regarding the daily life, habits, and opinions of the great literary dictator.
