Publisher: McGraw-Hill, New York
Publication Date: 1952
Edition: First Printing of the First US Edition.
A Near Fine copy in a Near Fine bright unclipped dust jacket with a touch of edge wear and ight offsetting to half title. These memoranda and letters from the time a young James Boswell spent in holland studying the law provide an intimate look at the famous biographer. Boswell seems a man troubled by depression as well as pressure from his father and a desire to raise himself socially. He can also be a kind of moral scold to the people he valued most. Not necessarily an attractive character but his candor and intimacy are what is valuable to a reader interested in how people really lived in the distant past. Bookseller Inventory # 24748
