The Yale Editions of the Private Papers of James Boswell

Series Editor(s): Gordon Turnbull

The Archives of James Boswell, now in the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Yale University, form one of the most important collections of eighteenth-century personal papers known to exist.

Two editions were planned from the outset. The Trade Edition (in thirteen volumes, with Portraits, by Sir Joshua Reynolds), edited for a general readership and completed in 1989, contains selected materials from Boswell's private diaries, supplemented by letters, memoranda, and other documents.

The Research Edition, more comprehensively annotated and designed for a scholarly readership, includes Boswell's correspondence, complete private journals and notes, the manuscript edition of the Life of Johnson, and a three-volume analytical catalogue of the collection.
