"Kevin Bourque and Valancourt Books are to be congratulated for bringing us a fresh, modern edition of an important eighteenth-century work that has languished too long out of print. Framed by a lively, informative introduction that situates Chrysal in several overlapping late-century concerns, including an emerging celebrity culture, and elucidated by extraordinarily helpful annotations that identify the real-life people to which the text alludes, this two-volume edition will make Johnstone's forgotten bestseller accessible not only to graduate students and scholars of the eighteenth century, but also to advanced undergraduates." -- Mark Blackwell, Associate Professor, The University of Hartford, editor, The Secret Life of Things.
