Johnsonian Miscellanies (2 vols.): xv, 488; vii, 517 p. 23 cm. Life of Johnson contains 14 illustrations, including 4 portraits of Johnson, 1 portrait of Boswell, 5 samples of Johnson's writing, one item addressed to Johnson, map of the tour through Scotland, and a chart of Johnson's contemporaries. 8 of these illustrations are fold-outs. The Letters include one fold-out facsimile. Half leather bindings signed by Morrell Binder London. Spines in gilt with burgundy and brown labels. Slight chips to spine heads of Life Vol. 3, Letters Vol. I and Miscellanies Vol. I. Three of the brown labels have slight cracking. A little wear to lower spines in Boswell's Life Vol. I and Miscellanies Vol. I. Life Vol. I has a discolouration to title page and frontispiece opposite. Vol. 3 has small dent at bottom of front board and discoloured pages near beginning where a news clipping is placed. Small professional paper repair to pull-out illustration in first volume of Letters. Discolouration to tops of pp. 56 and 57 in Vol. I of Miscellanies. Bookplates of Frederick Cowan on front pastedowns. The London bindery of W. T. Morrell was established c. 1861 in Soho, London. Morrell s son W.J. Morrell took over the management in 1887 after his father s death, and subsequently brought his brother John into partnership. In 1891 an observer noted that W.J. & J. Morrell, at that time employing 50 people, preferred to bind all their work by hand and the gilding and the marbling of both paper and leather was also done on site. The editor of these works, George Birkbeck Hill (1835-1903), devoted himself to the study of English 18th-century literature, and gained a reputation as the most learned commentator on the works of Samuel Johnson. The elaborate six-volume edition of Boswell's Life of Johnson, included here, is a monumental work, invaluable to a student studying Johnson. A gorgeous set that will look magnificent on the shelf of any Johnson admirer. N° de ref. de la librería 120012
