Most widely held works by Leslie A Chilton
Poems, plays, and the Briton by T Smollett( Book )

7 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The poems, plays and political writings included in this volume are essential to an understanding of Tobias Smollett and the literary and social currents of eighteenth-century England ... Byron Gassman identifies the circumstances that prompted Smollett to undertake these writings, traces the history of their publication and reception, and provides extensive explanations of historical and literary allusions"--Jacket
The Adventures of Telemachus, the son of Ulysses by François de Salignac de La Mothe- Fénelon( Book )

13 editions published between 1997 and 2017 in English and held by 269 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
The devil upon crutches by Alain René Le Sage( Book )

11 editions published between 2005 and 2017 in English and Spanish and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first reprinting since the eighteenth century - and the first scholarly edition - of Tobias Smollett's translation of Alain Rene Le Sage's The Devil upon Crutches. First published in France in 1707 as Le Diable boiteaux, the novel relates the picaresque wanderings of Asmodeus, a refined, likable, but decrepit devil, and Zambullo, his newfound mortal companion."
The adventures of Gil Blas of Santillane by Alain René Le Sage( Book )

10 editions published between 2011 and 2017 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his early years in London, Smollett struggled to find a way to distinguish himself through his medical practice, medical writings, poetry, and plays. None of these attempts, however, allowed him to demonstrate the full range of his personality and talents. Only when he combined his own boundless imagination with the skills he had learned from translating Gil Blas was he able to create energetic narratives filled with vivid and original characters
