Publisher Marketing: The 18th century was a wealth of knowledge, exploration and rapidly growing technology and expanding record-keeping made possible by advances in the printing press. In its determination to preserve the century of revolution, Gale initiated a revolution of its own: digitization of epic proportions to preserve these invaluable works in the largest archive of its kind. Now for the first time these high-quality digital copies of original 18th century manuscripts are available in print, making them highly accessible to libraries, undergraduate students, and independent scholars. Western literary study flows out of eighteenth-century works by Alexander Pope, Daniel Defoe, Henry Fielding, Frances Burney, Denis Diderot, Johann Gottfried Herder, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, and others. Experience the birth of the modern novel, or compare the development of language using dictionaries and grammar discourses. ++++The below data was compiled from various identification fields in the bibliographic record of this title.

J. P. Taylor wrote, 'I have never been at a loss for an answer. Samuel Johnson of course. Not Churchill, not Wellington or Nelson. Certainly not Darwin.'""Samuel Johnson (1709-1784)was born in Lichfield. From 1737 he lived in London. He was a prolific journalist, writing for "The Rambler" (he was almost its sole contributor), "The Adventurer, " and "The Idler". His great works include his "Dictionary of the English Language "and "The Lives of the English Poets" (reissued in Faber Finds in the George Birkbeck Hill 1905 edition. He was also the subject of the greatest biography in the English language, Boswell's "Life of Johnson".
