The text of this edition of one of the finest and funniest epistolary novels is taken from the first edition of 1771 and includes the illustrations that Thomas Rowlandson added to the novel in 1790-93.A few obvious typographical errors have been corrected, but Smollett's creative misspellings in the letters of Tabitha Bramble and the inimitable Win Jenkins have been retained with all of their comically earthy overtones.
