Psalmanazar, George (16791763)

Psalmanazar, George, an impostor, born in the South of France, who, being brought to London, imposed on Compton, bishop of London, by fabricating a history of Formosa, of which he professed to be a native, but was convicted of the error of his ways by Law's “Serious Call,” and led afterwards what seemed a sober life, and one to commend the regard of Johnson (16791763).
