This exhibition honors the scholarship and teaching of Arthur Friedman, distinguished University of Chicago English Department faculty member and editor of The Collected Works of Oliver Goldsmith (Oxford, 1966), the culmination of 30 years of study of the Goldsmith canon. Friedman's work drew on other Goldsmith scholars, including Ronald S. Crane at the University of Chicago. The exhibition suggests the scope of Goldsmith's writings and the nature and complexity of the bibliographical problems his texts present. The selections include Goldmsith's major works in a representative number of editions and minor works that are rare or examples of special bibliographical problems.
