Abstract:

This collection consists of 744 letters and fragments written by Johnson between 1731 and 1784, and manuscript transcripts and reproductions of other Johnson letters which are unavailable elsewhere. It includes 232 letters to Johnson's most regular correspondent, his friend Hester Lynch Thrale (later Hester Lynch Piozzi), from 1765 until 1784. Other particularly noteworthy correspondents were actor David Garrick; the painters Frances Reynolds and Sir Joshua Reynolds; and novelist Samuel Richardson. Regular correspondents represented most heavily in the collection include Mrs. Thrale's daughter Hester (later Hester Maria Elphinstone, Viscountess Keith); friend and protege Bennet Langton; stepdaughter Lucy Porter; and boyhood friend John Taylor. All but four of the complete letters were published in Redford's Hyde Edition, the exceptions being letters to Thomas Cadell, Thomas Lawrence, Thomas Percy, and Henry Thrale.
