(1741-1821), who became Hester Lynch Piozzi following her second
marriage. The original version of the text was published in 1786,
shortly after Johnson's death in 1784. An editorial introduction
and bibliography were created for this Cambridge edition. This book
will be of value to anyone with an interest in Johnson, Thrale and
