London: The Grampian Club, 1874. First Edition. First Edition of the extraordinarily scarce book on James Boswell, the 9th Laird of Auchinleck (October 29, 1740 - May 19, 1795), lawyer, diarist, and author born in Edinburgh, Scotland. Very good minus with some fading/staining to gilt stamped blue boards and hinges starting; contents generally very good with some minor dampstaining and browning to pages where newspaper clippings/paperclips had been laid in. Many pages unopened. Nevertheless still an attractive copy of a rare book in the marketplace. Very good minus. Hardcover.
