The Journals in Scotland, England and Ireland, 1766-1769 is the second volume in the Research Edition series of Boswell's journals, chronicling the life of James Boswell from autumn 1766 to May 1769.
In these journals, the reader gets a glimpse into Boswell's early career as a young advocate practicing at the Scottish bar. It covers his professional life, including details about the creation and publication of his bestselling Account of Corsica, and his involvement in the legal case known as the Douglas Cause.
On a personal level, the journals cover Boswell's search for a wife, including his trip to Ireland to woo a young heir accompanied by his cousin and wife-to-be Margaret Montgomerie. His travels to London and Oxford in 1768 are also documented, where his journal entries, including his conversations with Samuel Johnson, are of notable interest.
