The Hunt for Boswell

Just ordered a copy of Pride and Negligence: The History of the Boswell Papers (1982), which is the story of the finding and accumulation of the papers, letters, journals of James Boswell!

The introductory chapter of Peter Martin’s A Life of James Boswell is one of the most thrilling tales about manuscripts — from the letters that were used to enclose shopping purchases to the wrangle for more from the family. And here are 290 pages about the “Hunt for Boswell”. Can’t wait to receive it.
