I don't understand why anyone would want to archive this dictionary. It is a terrible edition.
It barely resembles Johnson's dictionaries, which documented examples of a word's usage over time
. Definitions are brief.
It's only value is in studying how John Walker, an early Victorian, chose to edit or destroy an important dictionary.

Nicely scanned - but what of pages 308&309?

The scan is beautiful, and makes the original accessible, but the original does severe damage to its source, leaving out all the quotations that Johnson used to illustrate his definitions. I'll wait until a scan of the full dictionary become available.
