The Journals of James Boswell, 1762-1795
Writer, rake, wit, traveler, and man-about-town, James Boswell kept a diary for thirty-three years, beginning just before his first trip to London and extending over his eventful life until shortly before his death in 1795. This one-volume selection of Boswell's journal entries, gathered and introduced by the distinguished writer John Wain, brings to life both a pre-eminent chronicler of eighteenth-century Britain and the tumultuous land about which he wrote so well.
