I met John Byrne, an Australian collector of Johnsoniana (and more generally the kind of guy you want to go have a beer or three with), at Pembroke last week. So this morning I was poking around on the Johnson Society of Australia webpage and found this clip from the show “Collectors” about his library, which is full of rare books related to Johnson. If you’ve got three minutes to spare–and clearly you do, if you’re reading this blog–you should check it out. It’s fascinating.
