Johnson’s Dictionary (1755): Extant Copies

To create this list, we compiled results from both WorldCat and the English Short Title Catalog. As we learned of other copies, we added them to the list. Then we confirmed each library’s holdings, either by checking the library’s own online catalog, or by contacting the library directly, or both.

Where a fractional copy is listed (e.g., 0.5), that library has one volume from the first edition, often supplemented by a volume from another edition.

If you see something on our list that needs revision–especially if you know of copies we have yet to locate–please let us know!
