bookshelves: 18th-century, british-isles, novel

Novel in letters recounting the travels of a family group through England and Scotland featuring the servant (and occasional Methodist lay preacher) they pick up on their way the eponymous Humphrey Clinker.

Apart from eighteenth-century humour the novel has an unusual celtic theme for example the surprise importance of Welsh inheritance law and in the slightly Don Quixote-like character of the Scottish Officer they pick up in Edinburgh.
