    Samuel Johnson and his much younger friend, James Boswell travelled together through Scotland in the autumn of 1773. Johnson's narrative of their famous tour (published 1775) gives his response to Scotland's history, culture and landscape (and his thoughts on the controversial Ossian), while Boswell's Journal (1785) offers insights into Johnson's thinking and personality. This edition is an unabridged reprint of the standard text, with an introductory note.
