"This bibliography by the distinguished Johnson scholar, the late J. D. Fleeman, records Johnson's literary output in chronological order and traces the development of his career and reputation as a professional writer. Detailed analysis of the works illustrates the practices of the 18th-century book trade, and identifies valuable and unjustly neglected editions. The bibliography also charts the course of Johnson's posthumous literary reputation with lists of new editions up to 1984, the bicentenary of his death" (publisher's description).
