THE text adopted for the present publication is that of the third edition, issued under the superintendence of Edmond Malone in 1799.

The notes at the foot of the page are Boswell's own, with the exception of those added by Malone, which are marked [M.].

Boswell's spelling and punctuation have been retained, in accordance with his own ideas as expressed in the preface to An Account of Corsica. 'If this work,' he writes, 'should at any future period be reprinted, I hope that care will be taken of my orthography.' Typographical errors, however, have been corrected, and the spelling of proper names in the Index has been made to conform to received usage.
