Comments

One of the great works in the literature of roguery - a satirical novel written under the guise of the biography of a famous criminal. Fielding's account of Wild (1682-1725) first appeared in Miscellanies (1743) and is here separately printed, significantly revised, for the first time.

Price: $850.00
