London Journal 1762-1763, Paperback / softback Book

London Journal 1762-1763 Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Edinburgh-born James Boswell, at twenty-two, kept a daily diary of his eventful second stay in London from 1762 to 1763.

This journal, not discovered for more than 150 years, is a deft, frank and artful record of adventures ranging from his vividly recounted love affair with a Covent Garden actress to his first amusingly bruising meeting with Samuel Johnson, to whom Boswell would later become both friend and biographer.

The London Journal 1762-63 is a witty, incisive and compellingly candid testament to Boswell's prolific talents.
