Excerpt from Dr. Johnson Fanny Burney: Being the Johnsonian Passages From the Works of Mme; D'arblay
This book represents the first complete collection of the Johnsonian material in the works of Miss Burney. It is remarkable that no such volume has appeared before; for, apart from Boswell, there is no account of Samuel Johnson more lifelike and picturesque than Miss Burney's. Yet, although practically all the other Johnsonian material has been edited with scrupulous care, Miss Burney's account has been allowed to remain scattered through the pages of two voluminous diaries and hidden in the now-forgotten Memoirs of Doctor Burney.
I have included in this work all the reminiscences of Johnson in Miss Burney's various works, with the exception of repetitions and of a few passages in which his name is only casually mentioned - passages in which he does not actually appear at all. The present extracts are, therefore, within the limits of their subject, not a volume of selections, in the strict sense of that term; they form, rather, a complete treatise. In my endeavor after completeness, I have even transcended the avowed subject and included also some passages dealing with such intimate friends of Johnson as Boswell and Reynolds.
