Tobias George Smollett, the doctor who looked at an dwrote about various aspects of life of the eighteenth century, was born in Dumbartonshire, a Scotch county in the year 1721. At the age of fifteen he was apprenticed to a surgeon of Glasgow, but three years later, following the example of Thomson, set forth for England with his first and worst literary venture "The Regicide."

"Smollett," said Hume, "was like a coco-nut, rough outside, but full of human kindness within." This same phrase describes in a nutshell, his works.
