Notes

A handsomely bound set of Samuel Johnson's works, part of Pickering's Oxford English Classics series. The edition was superintended by Francis Pearson Walesby (1798-1858), professor of Anglo-Saxon in the University of Oxford. The work was initially intended as a nine volume series; a supplementary two volumes of Johnson's debates brought the total to eleven.
