17221807
a County Durham born schoolmaster and writer. Possibly his main legacy is his "Translation of Lucian" from ancient Greek language, on which he spent almost 25 years from 1773 to 1798. This was published in 5 volumes. At the time it was considered to be of great importance in the literary world, but this importance has since diminished with the appearance of other more classical translations. Dr. Carr considered his other works to be mere trifles on which he set little value.
