Prayers and Meditation composed by Samuel Johnson
Prayers and Meditation composed by Samuel Johnson – second edition 1785
Red leather spine with slight rubbing at the head
This collection of prayers and meditations was intrusted to George Strahan as Dr. Johnson reached the end of his life. As George Strahan writes in the preface these devotions ‘will be, no doubt, welcomed by the public, with a distinction familiar to that which has been already paid to his other works.’ Now some 250 years later the public can still pause for thought and reflect with this volume.
