This article presents a biographical account of the leading Defoe scholar of the nineteenth century, William Lee, who added over sixty works to the canon of Defoe's writings, as well as a mass of journalism never before attributed to him. It argues Lee's understanding of Defoe was limited and that each of his attributions needs careful and unprejudiced re-examination before they can be accepted.
