Writer Tobias Smollett set off on a journey through France and Italy to relieve a low period in his life. Promising to keep records of inns, prices, and methods of transport for friends who might wish to make the journey, he wrote faithfully. Filled with prejudice, grousing, sharp observation, and caustic satire, Smollett's writings go beyond simple information to become one of the first travelogues to reflect the writer's state of mind. 144 pp. Copyright © Libri GmbH.

Tobias Smollett (1721-1771) is best known today as a novelist, but in the eighteenth-century, he was regarded as a historian and critic. In this book, Richard J. Jones explores the diversity of Smollett's journalistic and literary writings and establishes new connections between Smollett's work and writers of the Scottish Enlightenment. The book takes as its focal point Smollett's visit to Nice, between 1763 and 1765, and the account he wrote of it in Travels through France and Italy (1766). This account is usually seen as a "travel narrative" but Jones argues that it should be read as a "pocket encyclopedia" in the tradition of Voltaire. Jones divides his study into sections on medicine, fine art, the theater and history. In doing so, he offers a productive juxtaposition of authors, texts and contexts, presenting Smollett as a writer whose Scottish (and particularly Glaswegian) identity informed his involvement in a wider European Enlightenment.
