Book description

{description of this volume is forthcoming}

According to a review in The College English Critic, "... there can be no denying that in the process of reading this engrossing and splendidly produced book we engage ourselves with a breathing, suffering, hoping, all-too-human fellow creature ... if Boswell's journal be not literature, where is literature to be found?"


This is one of the volumes of the Boswell journals that is hardest to find. Possibly Boswell's account of his interview with the dying philosopher David Hume has made it made interesting to a larger than usual audience. Some copies are usually available via AbeBooks
