This edition makes available for the first time in an affordable edition the most valuable features of the acclaimed Florida edition of the two works of Sterne's last year of life, A Sentimental Journey and Continuation of the Bramine's Journal, including a generous selection of its notes. The inclusion of both works in this volume will not only enhance the reputation of the Bramine's Journal, but shed new light upon its better known companion. Several additional documents provide ample context for understanding these works in relation to Sterne's life and other writings.
