Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos.

Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

Published Date: 2005
Categories: Poetry
This work is based on a simple premise-that in the case of a major figure like Johnson the reader should have access to all his work. Johnson himself would not have wished that in an age when very few can read the language his Latin poetry should be consigned to a separate category, closed to most educated readers.
