`The best letters in this magnificent compendium, are those addressed to his beloved Mrs Thrale ...'
A.N. Wilson, London Evening Standard.

`This is an extraordinary collection which deserves a place in the library of anyone who is interested in Johnson, or the 18th century, or humankind itself.'
Peter Ackroyd, The Times

`Our American fellow-speakers of English have done Johnson proud in the past. Now, with this collection, published by the Clarendon Press ... they have done him proud again.'
J. Enoch Powell, Sunday Times

`the meticulous recording of Johnson's crossings-out and corrections and of the present whereabouts of manuscripts are valuable and pleasing on their own account.'
Lorna Sage, Observer

`As an act of scholarship, the work requires no pleading on its behalf.'
Giles Smith, Independent on Sunday

`There have been serious editions of Dr Johnson's correspondence before ... but this one, done in an appropriately grand manner, supersedes them all.'
Frank Kermode

`[This] new edition of his correspondence, the most complete so far, brings out the many-sidedness of the man. ... Clearly then, Chapman's [edition] has been superseded by this new edition. ... the majestic heights of Redford's great new edition of Johnson's letters.'
Anthony Curtis, Financial Times

`sumptuously well-edited collection'
Jonathan Keates, The Independent

`The time was ripe for a new gathering, and Professor Bruce Redford has carried out the task with stylish efficiency. ...printers and designers deserve all praise for the elegance of presentation. Good paper, robust bindings, and a large type-face, all combine to make the edition a joy to handle.'
alan Bell, The Spectator

`Bruce Redford's new edition of Johnson's Letters is, as one, would expect superior in several wasy to R. W. Chapman's 1952 edition. ...the letters in these volumes are well spaced and handsomely printed ...Fifty-two new letters have been added to the canon, of which undoubtedly the most important are the twelve to Charlotte Lennox confirming Johnson's significance as a promoter of female writers. David Nokes, Times Literary
Supplement

`this a scholarly edition in all its splendour, prepared with infinite pains and a daunting erudition ... the books themselves are solid, elegant, eminently legible, a great credit to their printer. I do not think I have ever reviewed any book with greater pleasure.'
Patrick O'Brian, Daily Telegraph

'edited by Bruce Redford, are an indispensable complement, without which the rest loses much of its value - one does not see Johnson plain. They shed new light on him from every direction ... this is a scholarly edition in all its splendour, prepared with infinite pains and a daunting erudition ... the books themselves are solid, elegant, eminently legible, a great credit to their printer. I do not think I have ever reviewed any book with greater pleasure.'
