"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, an 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."--Jacket

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of original essays on the writings of Tobias Smollett by eleven scholars from Canada, England, France, Ireland, and the United States takes a fresh look at issues raised not only in Smollett's novels, for which he is now usually remembered, but in works such as A Complete History of England and the Continuation of the Complete History, which made him the most popular historian of England in the mid-eighteenth century. Essays provide new insights into Smollett's writings, and suggest additional avenues for scholars to explore. The volume continues the reassessment of the writings of one of the major authors of the eighteenth century."--Jacket

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

6 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 139 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
