Abstract: This image is from a collection created by Etta Hanson and given to the College in 1954. All items are from Otto Ege's estate. There is a typed description at the bottom of the mat, which reads: “This great work was finally issued in 1755 by W. Strahan. The underwriting publishers received excellent returns on their investment (the 24th edition appeared in 1782), while Johnson was arrested twice for debt in the course of the year following that publication.”
