The adventures of Roderick Random by T Smollett( Book )
974 editions published between 1748 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 4,436 libraries worldwide
"Surging with verbal, sexual, and martial energy, The Adventures of Roderick Random opens a window on life, love, and war in the eighteenth century. The hero battles his way from poverty and neglect to make his mark as a doctor, writer, fighter, and lover. His adventures take us across the world, from England and France to the Caribbean, Africa, and Latin America. One of the first truly global novels, it casts light on nearly every aspect of its time -- imperialism, gender relations, slavery, urban life, colonial warfare, commerce, politics, the professions, high society, and the Hogarthian underworld."--Jacket flap
The adventures of Ferdinand, Count Fathom by T Smollett( Book )
117 editions published between 1753 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,777 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."

171 editions published between 1755 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,370 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 life and adventures of Sir Launcelot Greaves by T Smollett( Book )
37 editions published between 1973 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,073 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 works of Voltaire : a contemporary version by Voltaire( Book )
141 editions published between 1762 and 2008 in English and held by 919 libraries worldwide
A Philosophical Dictionary was published in 1764 and was Voltaire's lengthiest work. A life-long project by the author, The Dictionary contains a series of alphabetically arranged articles about topics from Abraham to Morality to Prussia to Youth. The articles were oftentimes critical of people and institutions like the Roman Catholic Church. It is because of these criticisms that Voltaire chose to publish the work anonymously. The volatile nature of the book also led Voltaire to use a different publisher to ensure his complete anonymity. Contrary to the name, A Philosophical Dictionary is not meant to be read as a series of separate articles like the reference book. Voltaire meant for the articles to be read as a group that provide support for his main idea: discontent with current social and political affairs. The book was wildly popular with the public, and the first edition quickly sold out. Rulers of the time like Frederick II of Prussia and Catherine the Great were public supporters of the title. Religious authorities, however, were not as enthusiastic about the text's messages. The Dictionary was censored in several countries including Switzerland and France, where the books were gathered and burned in the streets

Travels through France and Italy by T Smollett( Book )
99 editions published between 1766 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 618 libraries worldwide
In 1763, Tobias Smollett set sail from Folkestone to Boulogne. He would not return to England for two years, during which time he travelled extensively - and in a notoriously ill-tempered fashion - through much of France and Italy. Smollett, seemed 'determined to be pleased with nothing' and was 'sardonic, satirical and decidedly gloomy'. In Paris, everything had 'shrunk' and was twice as expensive as his last visit. Versailles was a 'dismal habitation'. In Rome, he felt that Michelangelo's "Last Judgement" resembled a mob; his inn in San Remo was more miserable than the worst alehou

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
