"The Real History of Tom Jones" revivifies historical materials from which Henry Fielding constructed the greatest comic novel of the eighteenth-century. This study recovers and explores the contexts necessary to understand Fielding''s subtle art, such as the bloody conflict for the throne between Stuarts and Hanoverians, a contradictory class system, game laws that both protected and flouted individual property rights, and a justice system that proclaimed hanging for many crimes but let most criminals go. Drawing on evidence such as the peculiar appearance of eighteenth-century money, the fraudulent autobiography of a gypsy king, and a magical prayer book illustration, the book offers new readings of both Tom Jones and the political and legal landscape of Georgian England.
