5.0 étoiles sur 5 All the wit and wisdom of Samuel Johnson 17 octobre 2013

One of my favourite books is Boswell's Life of Johnson, and I had been on the lookout for a good Kindle version. So I was very pleased to come across the Delphi Complete Works, which contains not only the complete Boswell, but also Osgood's abridged version. Looking down the contents list, I saw that Mrs Thrale's biography of Johnson was also included, plus essays on the great man by Nathaniel Hawthorne, G.K. Chesterton, H.P. Lovecraft and Thomas Babbington Macaulay. This would already represent a large amount of shelf space if it came in book form, but the Delphi edition also contains all the Rambler, Adventurer and Idler essays, The Lives of the Poets, extensive selections from The Dictionary (and not just the handful of often quoted definitions that all Johnson fans know), all the poetry and a great deal else. For a few seconds I thought that Rasselas had been unaccountably left out, but it too is there, under its original title of The Prince of Abyssinia. If you like Samuel Johnson or if you want to find out about him, this version has everything you need at a incredibly low price.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Well Produced, Highly Useful Edition 23 octobre 2013
Par Richard Evans Lee - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is an inexpensive edition of Johnson's Works that is clearly more useful than an accumulation of freebies. If only for navigability. And more comprehensive than affordable texts by major publishers.

I've been reading Johnson since my teens. I own physical editions of the unabridged Boswell and Lives of the Poets. And essays, etc.

This is portable, complete and well-edited. I never tire of Johnson and am glad i'll have good edition at hand wherever I am.

An almost complete collection of Johnson's works, formatted and organized according to the high standards of all of Delphi's publications. I would love to see the following in an updated version -- for a really complete Johnson:

Boswell's Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides

The footnotes to Boswell's Life of Johnson. Many of the footnotes in the second and later editions of the Life were written by Boswell himself, and often significantly modify his account in the Life. There's also an awful lot of very entertaining abuse of Mrs Thrale and others who wrote on Johnson's life.

Johnsoniana (a wonderful collection of aphorisms and anecdotes that did not make it into Boswell.

Robert Lynd's Dr Johnson and Company, one of the finest and most entertaining introductions to Johnson and the cast of characters surrounding him.

It is very difficult to find all of these writings in complete form. Normally you will find print editions which are edited or selected. Johnson's writings are wonderful and I was thrilled to get such a comprehensive edition of them at so reasonable of a price.

I have not really even begun to scratch the surface of Mr. Johnson, but how can I complain when there is such an enormous amount for such a low price.
One suggestion though is for there to be separate page numbers for each work. I cannot stand not knowing what page I am on.

No serious lover of language should be without this superb work; Kindle makes it affordable and accessible. I still prefer my hardback edition, but the Kindle version goes where I go.
