First words
General Introduction -- The original volumes in the series Who's Who in British History were well received by readers who responded favorably to the claim of the late C. R. N. Routh, general editor of the series, that there was a need for a work of reference which should present the latest findings of scholarship in the form of short biographical essays.
Preface -- Anybody who reads about the eighteenth century will be struck by a quality of originality in its foremost men and women.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0811716430, Hardcover)

Of the notable artists and craftsmen of the time, Laurence Sterne, author of the mock-heroic novel Tristram Shandy, makes an appearance here, as do the furniture maker Thomas Chippendale, painter Sir Joshua Reynolds, author Edward Gibbon (The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire), and composer George Frederic Handel. On the political side, the author includes the "mad" King George III, the revolutionary Thomas Paine, the economist Adam Smith (whose influence is still felt today), and the great explorer Captain James Cook.
