This is the fourth volume of the Yale Editions of the Private Papers of James Boswell. It is the wonderfully fresh and detailed journal of the exuberant 24-year-old Scot as he samples the dazzling court life in Germany, and relentlessly seeks out two of the greatest men of his day- Rousseau in Switzerland and Voltaire just across the border in France. Published from James Boswell’s original private papers edited by Frederick A Pottle.
A 1953 hardcover edition with navy blue cloth cover and navy blue top edging and gilt lettering. The dust cover is torn and foxed and toned. The interior of the book is foxed and toned but the text is legible. The back page is separated from the binding. The edges are rubbed.
This edition published 1953
