New York: McGraw-Hill, [1982]. Large octavo. Cloth and boards. Minute pencil- tip size pinhole in upper joint at toe, otherwise about fine in dust jacket with corresponding blemish mended on verso. Item #WRCLIT77451

First and only edition of the most authoritative, detailed and objective history of the acquisition, editing and publication of the Boswell papers, by the project editor through most of its life. An eminently readable book, and for various reasons, until the advent of online bookselling shook scattered copies out of the wilderness, a quite uncommon one as well.
