An annotated copy of Goldsmith's Life of Nash, 1762
M. J. Jannetta
To some it may seem extravagant for a library already endowed with four copies of a book knowingly to acquire a fifth. The copy of the first edition of Oliver Goldsmith's Life of Richard Nash (London, 1762), recently purchased by the British Library will, however, for students of the author, undoubtedly be by far the most interesting and important of any so far located in the British Library or elsewhere. For it contains holograph revisions for the second edition, together with evidence of a collaborating editor.
