Boswell's London Journal, 1762-1763

by

Boswell's London Journal, 1762-1763 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1762 James Boswell, then twenty-two years old, left Edinburgh for London. The famous Journal he kept during the next nine months is an intimate account of his encounters with the high-life and the low-life in London. Frank and confessional as a personal Portrait of the young Boswell, the Journal is also revealing as a vivid portrayal of life in eighteenth-century London. This new edition includes a foreword by Peter Ackroyed that discusses Boswell's life and achievement.

Synopsis:

Praise for the earlier edition: "The journal is admirably edited and annotated."--W. H. Auden, New Yorker
