A 16-page pamphlet version of an article formerly published in Blackwood's Magazine. Sewn binding at the spine. Macaulay's criticism of Croker's edition of Boswell's Life of Johnson sparked a bitter feud between the two men. From the Prefaratory note inside the front cover: 'The republication, in a cheap form, for railway reading, of Mr. Macaulay's bitter and unjust article on Mr. Croker's edition of Boswell's Life of Johnson, has induced Mr. Murray to issue in a cheap form a series of replies to the assertions and criticism of that article.' Worn and torn; there is a tear, approx one inch, in the foredge of every page and another tear to the top edge of the front cover / title page.
