(1778–1822), third son of James Boswell, Johnson's biographer. He collaborated with Edmond Malone and completed his unfinished edition of Shakespeare, the so-called Third Variorum or ‘Boswell's Malone’ of 1821 (21 vols.), significant for its size and its exhaustive and systematic coverage of all current Shakespearian facts and problems.
