Samuel Johnson. Political Tracts. London: Strahan & Cadell, 1776. *2003J-SJ536

Johnson is known to have inscribed several books as gifts to Boswell, but this is the only such copy of one of Johnson’s own works. It collects four pamphlets Johnson wrote in the early 1770s: The False Alarm, Thoughts on the Late Transactions Respecting Falkland's Islands, The Patriot, and Taxation No Tyranny.
