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

6 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in English and held by 317 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
Telemachus, son of Ulysses by François de Salignac de La Mothe- Fénelon( Book )

10 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and held by 265 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 )

10 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After Zambullo releases Asmodeus from a bottle, the two embark on a flight above the rooftops of Madrid. Peeking into houses, prisons, palaces, and even tombs, Zambullo witnesses one incident of treachery and self-delusion after another. Smollett's superior wit and sense of irony suited him as well as translator for this novel, with its juxtaposition of realism with romance, satire with sentiment, and sexual intrigue with moral admonition."
