The Personal History of Samuel Johnson.
"A marvelously readable biography that tells much taht Boswell did not know, still more that he knew but did not care to divulge." The 20th-century master of historical biography devoted himself to find every conceivable source of information and distilled it into this one-of-a-kind bio full of facts and anecdotes, void of opinions and fluff. Follow Johnson from schoolboy to slow rise to fame. Meet those extraordinary friends he made throughout his life in all his various social circles.1st US ed. X-Lib. Harper & Row. 1971. Hb, Dj.
