'I am shocked to hear you quote from so vicious a book,' said Johnson of Tom Jones, and there were those who held it responsible for the two earthquake shocks which hit London shortly after its publication in 1749. Few readers will nowadays subscribe to such a view. For most readers this is one of the great comic novels in the English language, a vivid Hogarthian panorama of eighteenth-century life, with a plot which Coleridge described as one of the three most perfect ever planned. In addition Tom Jones possesses an underlying seriousness and all the rich and generous humanity of its author.

The cover shows a detail of a painting of Westcombe House by George Lambert, by kind permission of the Earl of Pembroke and Montgomery.


Fair (F): I may show some wear and tear but all my text pages and illustrations are present. Some non-essential pages may be missing, or my binding, jacket, or cover may be worn. I may not be much to look at, but I am still readable.
