Anecdotes of the Late Samuel Johnson by Mrs Piozzi, ed. S C Roberts [1925]

£12.99

Product description

Anecdotes of the Late Samuel Johnson LLD in the Last Twenty Years of His Life, by Hesther Lynch Piozzi. Edited, with an introduction, by S C Roberts.

Hardback with printed paper boards and black vellum, title label affixed to spine. Published by Cambridge University Press, 1925.

Hester Lynch Piozzi (1741-1821), born Hester Lynch Salusbury and best known by her first married name of Hester Thrale, was a Welsh-born diarist, author, and friend of Dr Samuel Johnson, Oliver Goldsmith, Fanny Burney, and other literary figures. After Dr Johnson’s death, she published the ‘Anecdotes’ and their letters to each other, which offered a different perspective from the portrait of Johnson given by Boswell. By that time she had lost her first husband and married the Italian music teacher Gabriel Mario Piozzi to general disapproval.

No dust jacket. Boards are bumped, with some staining and wear to title label. Inscription on front endpaper. Internally the pages are yellowed, but binding is tight.
