London: Printed for R. Griffiths, 1755. [Book Reviews] CONTEMPORARY REVIEW OF Dr. Johnson's Dictionary. Octavo (22 x 14cm), pp.viii; 516 . With an unpaginated index at rear. Contemporary speckled calf boards, re-backed in the nineteenth century in straight-grained red morocco with gilt titles. Not a happy marriage of binding styles or colours. Wear to board edges and bumped corners; joints split. Fair. A cursory review published just 25 days after the publication of the great two-volume folio magnum opus. Stretching over 32 pages, its length is largely attributed to extensive extracts re-printed verbatim. Also containing a rather scathing review of the first volume of David Hume's magisterial 'History of England', published in 1754. Item #51141
