London Blue Plaques
Actor and writer Stephen Fry poses outside 54 Eaton Square in London - the former home of actress Vivien Leigh - during the launch of 'Handheld History'  Blue plaques are among the most familiar features of the London streetscape. They adorn the fa§ades of buildings in areas as different as Primrose Hill, Soho and Wimbledon; some of these buildings are grand, others look very ordinary, but all are connected by the fact that a remarkable person lived or worked there at some point in history. Blue plaques celebrate great figures of the past and the buildings that they inhabited. They open a window into another time by showing us where the great and the good have penned their masterpieces, developed new technologies, lived or died. Actors, authors, politicians, painters, scientists, sportsmen, campaigners and reformers – people from different countries, cultures and backgrounds – have all been commemorated in this way. The blue plaques scheme has been run by English Heritage since 1986, and continues to grow at a rate of around twenty plaques each year. From 2004, the scheme will be extended across England on a region-by-region basis; there are already blue plaques in Merseyside, Birmingham, Southampton and Portsmouth.

    Books by James Boswell
    The Life of Johnson
    This was, and is, Boswell's masterpiece and undoubtedly one of the greatest biographies, if not books, ever written. The first edition was published on May 16, 1791 in two volumes quarto. A supplementary volume was added in 1794, to be followed almost immediately by a second edition in three volumes octavo,which did not properly incorporate the additional material. The third edition, with all the new materials finally included in their proper places, was completed by Edmond Malone after Boswell's death and published in four volumes octavo in 1799, but it is the fourth edition, published in 1804 under Malone's personal supervision, which is generally accepted as the first accurate and comprehensive version. Malone (1741 - 1812) was a friend of both Johnson and Boswell and a member of The Club. He was the first great Shakespearean editor and also helped Boswell considerably with the preparation of both The Tour of the Hebrides and the Life The next edition of note was the famous, or infamous, one produced by Croker in 1831 and excoriated by Macaulay in one of his much re-printed essays. Then came the attractive Napier edition of 1884, which added to the four volumes of the

    "ON WAR"
    by James Boswell
    "... a battle now is truly nothing else than a huge conflict of opposite engines worked by men, who are themselves as machines directed by a few; and the event is not so frequently decided by what is intentionally done, as by accidents happening in a dreadful confusion. It is as if two towns in opposite territories should be set on fire at the same time, and victory should be declared to the inhabitants of that in which the flames were least destructive." (essay originally written in 1777) W hile viewing, as travelers usually do, the remarkable objects of curiosity at Venice, I was conducted through the different departments of the Arsenal; and as I contemplated the great storehouse of mortal engines, in which there is not only a large deposit of arms, but men are continually employed in making more, my thoughts rebounded , if I may use the expression, from what I beheld; and the effect was, that I was first as it were stunned into a state of amazement, and when I recovered from that, my mind expanded itself in reflections upon the horrid irrationality of war. What those reflections were I do not precisely recollect. But the general impression dwells upon my memory; and however strange it may seem, my opinion of the irrationality of war is still associated with the Arsenal of Venice.

    Born in Edinburgh on the 29th October 1740, James Boswell had a career in law mapped out by his father. After education at a private school, Edinburgh University and Glasgow University, he practised law in the capital city. Boswell longed to live in London and lived there for a few months in 1760. It was during another stay in London beginning in 1762, after passing his exams in civil law, that Boswell first met Dr. Samuel Johnson on 16th May 1763. Boswell was fascinated by the mind of Johnson. From 1766 to 1785 Boswell was an advocate in Edinburgh before moving to London permanently c1785. In 1769 he had married his cousin Margaret Montgomerie at Lainshaw. On the death of his father in 1782, James Boswell inherited the family estates at Auchinleck. He became a capable and well-liked Laird. For many years Boswell worked on his famous works "Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides, 1785", and "Life of Johnson 1791".

    Boswell was born in Edinburgh, and educated at the universities of Glasgow, Edinburgh, and Utrecht. He was admitted to both the Scottish and English bars and practised law but devoted himself primarily to the pursuit of a literary career. His most important early work was An Account of Corsica (1768), a sympathetic study of the struggle for independence of that island, written after an extended tour of Europe. In 1763 Boswell met the writer Samuel Johnson, and from 1772 until Johnson's death in 1784 the two men were closely associated. In 1773 Boswell was admitted to Johns Literary Club, which included the statesman Edmund Burke, the writer Oliver Goldsmith, the painter Sir Joshua Reynolds, and the actor David Garrick. Thereafter, Boswell devoted much of his time to compiling detailed records of Johnson's activities and conversation. Boswell's accounts covered periods of daily association with Johnson in London and also described a trip that the two friends made through Scotland to the Hebrides in 1773. After the death of Johnson, Boswell's Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides (1785) and Life of Samuel Johnson (1791) were published. Boswell is best known for the latter work, which is generally considered a masterpiece of biography.

    Myers Literary Guide Centre for Northern Studies JAMES BOSWELL (1740 - 1795) James Boswell made a tour of the border counties of England and Scotland, described in Journal of my Jaunt In the building now called White Knights in Spital Tongues, Newcastle, there was a private asylum where Boswell used to visit his mentally unstable brother, John. According to his journals, Boswell was there in May 1775, and again on 12 March 1776, when he reflected that it was better to have one's mind obscured than to be actively unhappy. John was able to recognise him and asked him for money. He then unexpectedly said: 'Take me with you.' Boswell was moved to tears, though he knew John was well looked-after and was in no anguish of mind or body. Boswell became recorder of Carlisle 1788-90. Return to Index On to next Author

    James Boswell
    Biographer and traveller. Born in Edinburgh, the son of the prominent advocate Lord Auchinleck, Boswell was educated at the Universities of Edinburgh, Glasgow and Utrecht. Although a lawyer by profession, Boswell travelled widely in Europe and is noted for his accounts of these journeys written in his distinctive style. Perhaps his best known work described his travels with Dr. Samuel Johnson to the Scottish Highlands and Islands. On the death of his father in 1782, Boswell inherited the family estates at Auchinleck, East Ayrshire and he moved there to become a capable and well-liked Laird. He spent much of his time there writing the biography of his friend and mentor Johnson, which was published in 1791. If you have found this information useful please consider
