Who was Lt Col C.B. Boswell?
Could you give any further details? The name doesn't spring to mind, although two of the most famous scholars/collectors of Boswelliana are C[hauncey] B[rewster] Tinker and Lt-Col. Ralph Isham.

James Boswell died in 1795 believing he had touched and kissed a cache of Shakespeare's original letters and papers discovered by a Mr. Ireland. His friend, Edmond Malone, publicly exposed the lot as a forgery just a year later.
