One of the best known and most discussed Latin poems by Samuel Johnson is the one he wrote after having finished the last edition of his English dictionary. Its title is GNOTHI SEAUTON. The text is identical in the editions I have consulted : the Oxford edition of his works (ed. D. Nichol Smith & E.L. McAdam, 1962) p. 159ff., the Yale edition of his works (ed. E.L. McAdam, vol 6. 1964) p. 271ff., and The Latin and Greek Poems by Samuel Johnson (ed. Barry Baldwin, 1995) p. 75ff.
