In this volume the reader has presented to him a mass of miscellaneous Anecdotes and Sayings, gathered from nearly a hundred different publications; which could not be produced as notes to Boswell, without overloading and perplexing his pages, but which are essential to the completion of the intellectual portrait of Johnson. Taken by themselves alone, these Ana might, it is presumed, claim a place with the best books of that popular description, in our own or in any other language. They form, it will hardly be disputed, one of the richest collections of Materials for Thinking that can be pointed out in literature.
