Poems, plays, and the Briton by T Smollett( Book )

7 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in English and held by 319 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 )

12 editions published between 1997 and 2017 in English and held by 268 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

Also included are a complete textual apparatus and a guide to the now-exotic pharmaceuticals and remedies one encounters in the novel."--Jacket
