Samuel Johnson is not only famous for his English Dictionary, and as the subject of Boswell's great biography; he was also the author of many different kinds of books - biographies, essays, literary criticism, poetry - and a regular though anonymous contributor to newspapers, magazines and tobooks by others. There was a little of the business of authors that he did not know, or about which he did not express a judgement.This bibliography by the distinguished Johnson scholar, the late J.D. Fleeman, records Johnson's literary output in chronological order, illuminating not only his multifarious writings but also the development of his career and reputation as a professional writer. It reveals the range of his workand the variety of his anonymous contributions (some of them first identified by Fleeman). Detailed analysis of the works examined sheds light on the practices of the 18th century book trade, and indentified editions, early and late, many of which are valuable and unjustly neglected. Thebibliography also lists new editions up to 1984, the bicentenary of Johnson's death, charting the course of his posthumous literary reputation.

Editorial Reviews

`'Dr Fleeman was not only erudite but also humane . . . erudition and humanity, the keynotes of this work, each contributes something to the pleasure of using it. The introduction opens a number of windows on eighteenth-century practices in printing, use of paper, binding, and so forth. Thebody of the book . . . offers collations, corrections of dates, re-assignments of authorship, a wealth of enviably accurate minutiae amounting to a mountain of knowledge.''Isobel Grundy, New Rambler
