London: Henry Baldwin / Charles Dilly, 1785. First Edition. Second state, with corrections on pp. 121, 237, and 299; half-title present. Octavo. Contemporary black quarter-calf, marbled boards and page edges, six compartments with gilt and blind tooling, titles, and rule.
Boswell's first Johnsonian title. Presentable overall.
Very Good plus. Light foxing throughout, light shelfwear, neat splits at the hinges, and a few small chips and closed tears.
