About this Item

Full mottled calf, re-backed with gilt rules to covers, spine gilt in compartments with black morocco label; marbled end-papers and sprinkled edges; half-title of Volume I dampstained, some faint spotting to a few pages of Volume II. First edition of this translation by Smollet, which went through six editions. As Smollett counted on translations as one of his main sources of income, he complete quite a number of classics, including Candide, The adventures of Don Quixote and The adventures of Gil Blas. De la Mothe-Fénélon (1651-1715) was a French theologian and writer as well as the leader of the heretical form of mysticism known as quietism. NCBEL, 2, 965. Bookseller Inventory # 11644
