In 1763 Tobias Smollett left England for the Mediterranean in search of a climate that might restore his health. In this famous account of his travels, the cantankerous, perceptive and most learned Smelfungus described everything and criticized most of it - from the food and 'shockingly nasty' beds to the local inhabitants of Nice where he settled. With a foreword by Ted Jones and introduction by Thomas Seccombe.
