There's a great long review essay

of an interesting group of books about Samuel Johnson at the TLS site. I must get all of these from the library if I can (I have to give a talk about Johnson at the end of January and several of these books are immediately relevant), but there are several that I covet, especially Allen Reddick's facsimile edition of Johnson's corrections to the Dictionary. Reddick is the author of a really superb book called The Making of Johnson's Dictionary; I love this stuff.
