About this Item

Very good copy in the original gilt-blocked cloth. Spine bands and panel edges somewhat rubbed and dust-toned as with age. Remains quite well-preserved overall; tight, bright, clean and strong. Physical description: V1 ; xliv, 999p. ; 24cm. Notes: Volume 1. Includes index and bibliography. Summary: This bibliography by the distinguished Johnson scholar, the late J.D. Fleeman, records Johnson's literary output in chronological order, illuminating not only his multifarious writings but also the development of his career and reputation as a professional writer. It reveals the range of his work and the variety of his anonymous contributions (some of them first identified by Fleeman). Detailed analysis of the works examined sheds light on the practices of the 18th century book trade, and undentified editions, early and late, many of which are valuable and unjustly neglected. The bibliography also lists new editions up to 1984, the bicentenary of Johnson's death, charting the course of his posthumous literary reputation. Subject: Johnson, Samuel 1709-1784 - Bibliography.

About this title

Synopsis:

Samuel Johnson is not only famous for his English Dictionary, and as the subject of Boswell's great biography; he was also the author of many different kinds of books - biographies, essays, literary criticism, poetry - and a regular though anonymous contributor to newspapers, magazines and to books by others. There was a little of the business of authors that he did not know, or about which he did not express a judgement. This bibliography by the distinguished Johnson scholar, the late J.D. Fleeman, records Johnson's literary output in chronological order, illuminating not only his multifarious writings but also the development of his career and reputation as a professional writer. It reveals the range of his work and the variety of his anonymous contributions (some of them first identified by Fleeman). Detailed analysis of the works examined sheds light on the practices of the 18th century book trade, and indentified editions, early and late, many of which are valuable and unjustly neglected. The bibliography also lists new editions up to 1984, the bicentenary of Johnson's death, charting the course of his posthumous literary reputation.

Review:

The year's greatest bibliographic achievement ... the definitive bibliography of Johnson's works ... A remarkable accomplishment, the bibliography will prove an essential resource for Johnson scholars. (Years Work in English Studies)

It is unlikely that any work on Johnson will ever achieve more. (Journal of English and Germanic Philology)

The title of this monumental book can only begin to suggest the richness and importance of its contents. The work of a lifetime, the late David Fleeman's bibliography is both an amazing thorough account of Johnson's publications, and a completely factual, impartial record of Johnson's life as a writer, including the continuation of that life in the press for the 200 years following his death in 1784. (Journal of English and Germanic Philology)

J. D. Fleeman's towering, endlessly interesting and valuable Bibliography of the Works of Samuel Johnson will educate us and elucidate the subjects and evidence we care about for many years to come. (The Review of English Studies, New Series)

Those who knew David Fleeman will find his personal characteristics - particularly his scrupulousness, integrity, and intelligence, as well as his charm and sense of humour - present throughout this bibliography. (The Review of English Studies, New Series)

The late J. D. Fleeman's Bibliography of the Works of Samuel Johnson has been excitedly awaited by scholars around the world ... Now that it has appeared, the result is staggering. (The Review of English Studies, New Series)
