The adventures of Roderick Random by T Smollett( )

164 editions published between 1780 and 2017 in English and held by 4,631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Roderick Random (1748), Smollett's first novel, is full of the dazzling vitality characteristics of all his work, as well as of his own life. Roderick is the boisterous and unprincipled hero who answers life's many misfortunes with a sledgehammer. Left penniless, he leaves his native Scotland for London and on the way meets Strap, and old schoolfellow. Together they undergo many adventures at the hands of scoundrels and rogues. Roderick qualifies as a surgeon's mate and is pressed as a common soldier on board the man-of-war Thunder. In a tale of romance as well as adventure, Roderick also finds time to fall in love ... Smollett drew on his own experiences as a surgeon's mate in the navy for the memorable scenes on board ship, and the novel combines documentary realism with great humor and panache"--Page 4 of cover

Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra( Book )

223 editions published between 1755 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 3,976 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Smollett's Don Quixote first appeared in 1755 and was for many years the most popular English-language version of Cervantes's masterpiece. However, soon after the start of the nineteenth century, its reputation began to suffer. Rival translators, literary hucksters, and careless scholars initiated or fed a variety of charges against Smollett - even plagiarism. For almost 130 years no publisher risked reprinting it."

The adventures of Ferdinand Count Fathom by T Smollett( Book )

137 editions published between 1753 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 2,650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 life and adventures of Sir Launcelot Greaves by T Smollett( )

28 editions published between 1973 and 2017 in English and Swedish and held by 2,255 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."
The adventures of Gil Blas of Santillane by Alain René Le Sage( Book )

234 editions published between 1715 and 2012 in English and held by 1,925 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This chronicle of a merry, philosophical young man whose adventures lead him into all levels of society from the highest to the lowest, presents special problems for a translator. Smollett, without always adhering to the literal expression of the novel’s language, is true to its style, spirit, and ideas. After two and a half centuries, his remains the finest translation of this humorous, satiric, and classic French novel. -- Amazon
