JAMES BOSWELL: And His World

Well-known litterateur David Daiches, who's also written about Robert Bums, Bonnie Prince Charlie, Sir Walter Scott, and Robert Louis Stevenson among many others, now turns his talents to a pictorial biography of ""Bozzy,"" that ""clubbable man"" (quoth Dr. Johnson), and incidentally evokes the atmosphere of 18th century Edinburgh and London. The approximately 100 illustrations include caricatures, pen-and-wash drawings, etchings, engravings, oil portraits, maps and manuscript reproductions. The format is 7(apple) x 9(apple).
