"First edition (thus) hardback - The Yale Editions of The Private Papers Of James Boswell, 1950, with no jacket. In overall good condition with minor signs of handling and storage - original blue cloth boards, with faded gilt titles to spine and gilt crest to front, are a little shelfworn with a couple of minor stains. Internally very clean. Binding tight and appears little read, no annotations or inscriptions; light tanning to page-ends but text and maps at endpapers clean and clear throughout. Frontispiece b&w reproduction of James Boswell painted by Joshua Reynolds from the National Portratit Gallery. From a private collection, not an old library book."
