Most widely held works by F. and C. Rivington (Firm)
The history of Rasselas, Prince of Abyssinia by Samuel Johnson( Book )

1 edition published in 1801 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Johnson's adaptation of the popular oriental tale displays his usual wit and perceptiveness; sceptical and probing, his tale nevertheless suggests that wisdom and self-knowledge need not be entirely beyond reach. This new edition relates Rasselas to Johnson's life and thought and to politics, society, and the global context of the Seven Years War. --from publisher description

The Adventures of Telemachus, the son of Ulysses by François de Salignac de La Mothe- Fénelon( Book )

1 edition published in 1802 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Both in its original French and its many translations, The Adventures of Telemachus was one of the most popular and revered works of the eighteenth century. During that time, more than ten English prose and poetry versions appeared, including this masterful prose translation by Smollett. Known for his novels Roderick Random and The Expedition of Humphry Clinker, Smollett was also a gifted translator. The Adventures of Telemachus was his final translation, and is one of the finest versions of the work. Long a disputed title in the Smollett canon, it is fully restored to his credit by Leslie A. Chilton
