About This Item

1760 Adventures of Bampfylde Moore Carew Beggars Gypsies America Tobacco Goadby

Bampfylde Moore Carew was an early 18th century English beggar who, miraculously, was the central character of a story by Robert Goadby. 'Life and Adventures of Bampfylde Moore Carew' told of Carew's life in disguise, his tricks and witty behavior, life with gypsies, travels and sea voyages to America, and involvement in tobacco trades.

Based on the 1745 original version, this undated 1760 sixth edition printing is titled 'An Apology for the Life' and is still thought to be written by Goadby.
