The Expedition of Humphry Clinker
BooknewsSmollett's last published novel (and most celebrated work) appeared in June 1771, three months before the author's death. This scholarly edition includes illustrations by George Cruikshank and Thomas Rowlandson, and features a comprehensive introduction, exhaustive textual editing, and detailed notes that cite passages from Smollett's nonfictional works and the works of his contemporaries to analyze the mass of allusions and references in the novel.

From the Publisher
This is the first really significant scholarly edition of the last-published novel by Smollett, which includes some wonderful illustrations. . . . Nothing seems to have been overlooked by Preston and Brack here in their efforts to present to the modern reader the most authoritative edition."—Choice

Really bad job of scanning. Just impossible to read. I appreciate the effort to get these classics into electronic form, but why put it out without making sure it's readable?
Even though this was written hundreds of years ago, it's still funny. I found myself laughing out loud numerous times. Great!
