The Adventures of Ferdinand Count Fathom is a novel by Tobias Smollett first published in 1753. It was Smollett's third novel ... The central character is a villainous dandy who cheats, swindles and philanders his way across Europe and England with little concern for the law or the welfare of others. The son of an equally disreputable mother, Smollett himself comments that "Fathom justifies the proverb, 'What's bred in the bone will never come out of the flesh'." Sir Walter Scott commented that the novel paints a "complete picture of human depravity."--Wikipedia.com
The adventures of Peregrine Pickle : in which are included, Memoirs of a Lady of Quality by T Smollett( )

140 editions published between 1758 and 2014 in English and held by 2,425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The genius of "Peregrine Pickle" and its young author is to be found neither exclusively in the interpolated tales that its contemporary audience read avidly nor in the 'main story' that appealed to its later readers but rather in the entire canvas upon which is painted a densely populated and vividly realized fictional world. Taken in its entirety, Smollett's novel still holds the power to delight and instruct a modern audience by virtue of its author's capacious vision, his force of spirit, and his ability to capture life in words and images."--from the editors' introduction
The life and adventures of Sir Launcelot Greaves by T Smollett( )

30 editions published between 1973 and 2017 in English and Swedish and held by 2,252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The novel, Smollett's shortest, differs stylistically from his previous works. The most attractive of his heroes, Sir Launcelot is virtuous and strange, and he is surrounded by a Smollettian menagerie whose various jargons are part of this novel's linguistic virtuosity and satire. Sir Launcelot's character is an English naturalization of Quixote. Although Sir Launcelot, is not the object of the author's satire, an idealistic madness is central to both characters. In Smollett's work the theme of madness is integral to the relationship between self and society as the work ponders both the constitution of madness and the alternatives to revenge."

Chilton
