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

His chief amusement was to picture to himself that world which he had never seen, to place himself in various conditions, to be entangled in imaginary difficulties, and to be engaged in wild adventures ... The other great book by the man who wrote the dictionary: THis is Dr. Johnson's beautiful, engaging, and ultimately inspiring story of a royal brother and sister who escape the castle and, traveling in disguise, search for a way to feel more useful to society. It leads to a years-long adventure amongst poor people and rich men, great intellectuals and merchants, holy men and ruthless warriors. It is an eye-opening experience that shakes the siblings to their core and ultimately turns into the most sublimely wise and moving works that Johnson ever wrote, not to mention a masterpiece of English literature

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
