The Adventures of Roderick Randomby Tobias Smollett, Paul-Gabriel Bouce
A tale of adventure and romance, it is written with great humour and panache. The memorable scenes on board ship, which provide an invaluable picture of the British sailor of the day, are drawn from Smollett's personal experience as a surgeon's mate in the navy.
