Riguardo questo articolo

FIVE VOLUMES. 12mo., [2], [ii], 354 pp; [4], 353, [1]; [4], 353, [3] pp; [2], ii, 356pp; [6], 354p., contemporary half roan, trifle scuffed, very good copies. Five Volumes [issued thus, despite title]. Book labels of Arthur Gordon Rippey to front paste downs. The actual compiler of these LIVES was Robert Shiels, one of Johnson¿s amanuenses for the DICTIONARY. Cibber was paid for the use of his name. ESTC states that there were additions and revisions by Cibber. The first Life in the work, Chaucer, in Volume I, is sub-captioned ¿Second Edition¿, evidently because the book was produced in 25 ¿parts¿ (five to a volume ¿ see foot of certain signatures) and a reprint of the first signature was called for during publication. Properly speaking this is the second edition of the work with the only change being the change to the first signature of Volume I. It is quite probable, as Bates has suggested, that Samuel Johnson made contributions to the work. ESTC T82892. $850.00. Codice inventario libreria 028482
