Explanation

The sentence is pretty straightforward.

Precedence : the fact of preceding in time; antedating.

X came first from who we thought indeed.

C is the best

Here the keyword to fill the blank is yet

Boswell biography of Samuel Johnson is the first ever made. yet , as it turns out the same thing we could say about Johnson himself as the author of a life of Richard Savage.

In this manner, we do have a precedence or antecedence.

Hope this helps
