Peter Longueville Books & Biography


Little is known about author Peter Longueville. His only literary contribution, The English Hermit: or the unparalleled sufferings, and surprising adventures of Phillip Quarll, was originally published in 1727. Some early editions announced the fictitious narrator of the novel, Edward Dorrington, as the author, presumably to increase popularity and lend realism to Longeuville’s story while other sources alternately credit Alexander Bicknell, who may have been a translator or editor of the work, as a co-author.
