Further Details

Volume 2 (the first covering Boswell’s travels in Germany and Switzerland). “James Boswell’s main concerns during the period of his life covered by this volume were sex, religion, and politics- the three subjects of conversation forbidden in polite society.” (Frank Brady, in his introduction). Condition: The boards are spotted from earlier attacks of mould. Some foxing to prelims and to fore edges. Internally, clean and unmarked but with the binding a little strained at around pages 162-163. Dust jacket foxed and dust-soiled. Overall, a reasonably good reading copy in a somewhat disgusting dust jacket. (You are not obliged to accept the dust jacket- I’m quite happy dispose of it for you).
