Cloth, 4to, 24 cm, 144 pp, ills. From the introduction: ". this commemorative exhibition aims to show something of Johnson's versatility as a thinker and writer, and his profound humanity, which have attracted followers and admirers here and abroad. The story of the bookseller's son from Lichfield, awkward looking, half blind, without a degree, who, without any support, started his career in London as a Grub Street hack and became a 'literary colossus', is still more captivating if told in its proper sequence. The exhibition therefore follows roughly a chronological pattern, and is divided in eight sections of which the first seven concern his life, and the last some biographies by his contemporaries. It focuses on two main features: (i) his method and career as a writer, and (2) the principal portraits of him from life." Contents include: 1 Lichfield, Oxford, and the Midlands; 2 First years in London; 3 Lexicographer; 4 Widower; 5 Pension, Boswell, and The Club; 6 The Thrales and Streatham Park; 7 Last years; 8 Early biographies; Select Bibliography.
