From the cover: “Dr. Samuel Johnson was already a famous man bv the time he met the young James Boswell in a London bookshop in 1763, Johnson being by then 54, while Boswell was an eager youth of 23. The two fell into close friendship instantly, and it was this happy meeting which brought English biography — indeed biography in any language — one of its finest treasures.”
