Johnson After Three Centuries

If you attended the symposium held at Houghton in celebration of Samuel Johnson’s 300th birthday (or wished you could have) you’ll be interested to hear that a volume of proceedings from the symposium has now been published, and is available from Harvard University Press and other major retailers. Johnson After Three Centuries: New Light on Texts and Contexts contains five papers from the conference, as well as a bibliography of research on the Dictionary published between 1955 and 2009, compiled by Jack Lynch. (If you subscribe to the Harvard Library Bulletin, you should already have received this volume as a special double issue.)
