David Fallon on Samuel Johnson

Samuel Johnson
by Joshua Reynolds (1775)
Dr David Fallon has published an article on the importance of booksellers' shops in Samuel Johnson's literary life, focusing in particular on the pivotal role played by Thomas Davies's shop in Covent Garden, the place where Johnson and James Boswell first met. The essay, which appears in The New Rambler - the journal of the Johnson Society of London - also considers wider questions about booksellers' shops in eighteenth-century London as meeting places for a range of literary and political groups.
