Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
With this title the University of Georgia Press begins its projected ten-volume critical edition of Smollett's major works, thereby addressing a need in 18th-century scholarship. For despite Smollett's importance, most of his writings, including this title, are out of print in both the United States and Britain. Beasley's introduction and extensive notes (some 80 pages) seek to make the work accessible to the modern reader by placing it in historical context and explaining words and allusions that may be unfamiliar. Undergraduate and public libraries that have the 1971 Oxford English Authors edition need not buy this, but scholars and libraries serving them will want to subscribe to the series. Joseph Rosenblum, Univ. of North Carolina at Greensboro
