William Tytler. An Inquiry, Historical and Critical, into the Evidence against Mary Queen of Scots. Third ed. Edinburgh: W. Drummond, 1772. *2008-1091.

When this defense of Mary Queen of Scots was originally published in 1760, Johnson reviewed it favorably in the Gentleman's Magazine. No doubt his review was at least in part due to the fact that he too was sympathetic to Mary. This copy of a later edition is inscribed by the author to Johnson.
