Frederick Pottle states, Croker was "the most acute and indefatigable of all Boswell's editors," but in the process of correcting, elucidating, and expanding Boswell's text, Croker most grievously distorted in and called down upon himself bitter criticism, most notably from the ruthless Thomas Babington Macauley. John Murray, the publisher, was obliged to have Croker's version radically revised by John Wright, who took all the material not written by Boswell or Johnson from the main text and placed it in the two supplementary volumes (Vols. 9 & 10).
