REVISED [SMOLLETT, Tobias].

The Adventures of Roderick Random … in two Volumes … The second Edition.

Second edition, with ‘major imaginative changes’, and frontispieces which appear here for the first time. Even though there were only a few weeks between the first and second editions, Smollett found time to make a number of significant corrections in the text, on average about one substantive change for every two to three pages, mainly to improve characterisation or style. See O. M. Brack, Jr. and James B. Davis in PBSA, LXIV (1970), 295-311.
