In Alphabetical Order

Today is the anniversary of the publication of Samuel Johnson‘s great “Dictionary of the English Language” (aka Johnson’s Dictionary) on 15 April 1755. It remained the dictionary for the next 150 years.

We visited Johnson’s House during our visit to London six months ago. It is a nicely restored 18th century townhouse full of period furniture, Johnson memorabilia and books – including Johnson’s Dictionary of course.
