About the Author
James Boswell (1740-1795) was born in Edinburgh, Scotland where he received a formal education in English, math and Latin. He attended the University of Edinburgh and University of Glasgow before traveling to London where he lived for several years. While studying law, he had a chance meeting with the English writer Samuel Johnson. After establishing a good rapport, Boswell would go on to produce the biography The Life of Samuel Johnson, which would become his crowning creative achievement.
DR. SAMUEL JOHNSON (1709-1784), British essayist and critic, created the first English dictionary, published in 1755. He may be the most quoted writer in the English language, after Shakespeare.
