The Impossible Friendship: Boswell and Mrs. Thrale.
The author is a well-known Johnsonian. Her wit and style in this biography of a friendship, rivalry, and finally bitter falling-out, make it a pleasure to read as a story, and a must for all studiers of Johnson, Boswell, or Mrs Thrale. This copy is in excellent condition, in a plastic protector, and comes with the July 1973 New York Review article. The book contains many period illustrations. Truly a delight.
