James Boswell : Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides with Samuel Johnson, LL.D.

'You talk of reading "a very old book": Boswell's Tour to the Hebrides. Why that's a [underlined] chickn [sic, underlined] compared to my present reading. I am reduced to a perusal of my own little library, and am solacing myself with Plutarch's Lives, and Robertson's History of Charles V. and vary my sport occasionally with an Historical Play of Shakespear, or a good Sunday Book.'

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: Anna Grosvenor      Print: Book
