Boswellian impact

Jack Werner's main contribution to Boswellian scholarship is arguably the volume Boswell's Book of Bad Verse, published in 1974. The volume contains annotated transcriptions of numerous poems and verses by Boswell, of which some were published in his own lifetime, while others have been known only in manuscript form from his papers and other sources.

Werner had previously (1956) edited an edition of Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides with Samuel Johnson, LL. D. for Macdonald & Co.
