London: printed for the Grampian Club, 1874. First edition, 8vo, pp. xxiii, [1], 343, [1]; portrait frontis, folding facsimile plate, list of Grampian Club subscribers; slightly later half polished calf over pebbled cloth boards, gilt-ruled spine in six compartments with brown goat label in one, speckled edges; joints starting, cloth sunned and rippled, text clean and sound. Pottle, p. 277: "Dr. Rogers Memoir is carefully written and unusually accurate; it was in its day the most ambitious biography of Boswell yet attempted. It still remains, so far as I am aware, the only recorded source for one important document: Boswell's Will, for the first time printed from the original manuscript." Item #53418
