Oliver Goldsmith (1728 - 1774) was a renowned Anglo-Irish writer of wrote novels, poems, plays, and essays. Among his enduring works are The Vicar of Wakefield, a novel about a clergyman and his family; The Deserted Village, a poem that laments threats to traditional rural life; and She Stoops to Conquer, a comedy that mocks the social pretensions of the time.

"Oliver Goldsmith: A Poet, Naturalist, and Historian, who left scarcely any style of writing untouched, and touched nothing that he did not adorn. Of all the passions, whether smiles were to move or tears, a powerful yet gentle master. In genius, vivid, versatile, sublime. In style, clear, elevated, elegant."

- Dr. Samuel Johnson, written for Goldsmith's epitaph, Westminster Abbey.

Illustrated with eight engravings by Thomas Brown.
