Riguardo questo articolo

8vo., xxxix,[1],180p., contemporary calf, traces of slight wear. With the bookplate of John Somers, Lord Somers to inside front cover. A very nice of the quite rare first edition of this curious attack on the diction of Dr. Johnson. Campbell was a classical scholar turned ship's purser who found himself at sea with nothing to read save The Rambler, hence this work, which Boswell calls "a malicious drollery." Courtney, p. 27; Alston, III.278; ESTC T94503; Tinker 1395. Codice inventario libreria 26509
