On Saturday 17 October 2015 at 12 noon we met again at the American Museum in Bath. Eric Christen kindly agreed to speak on ‘James Boswell’s visit to Voltaire’ The AGM took place at 11.30 am preceding the lunch.
Visitors unfamiliar with the Scottish man of letter James Boswell (1740-1795) are encouraged to take a look at http://www.jamesboswell.info/, Thomas Frandzen's Boswellian website. Those keen to move on Boswell in print should get a hold of Gordon Turnbull's edition of Boswell's London Journal, published by Penguin.
