The history of Tom Jones, a foundling by Henry Fielding( Book )

Lusty tale set in 18th century England. Tom Jones is an orphan raised by the village squire who grows up to be a handsome young man with a way with women. He loves the daughter of a neighboring landowner, and falls into many adventures in pursuit of her, including duels, bedroom romps and prison!
Joseph Andrews by Henry Fielding( Book )

363 editions published between 1742 and 2015 in 9 languages and held by 3,750 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Joseph, a footman in eighteenth-century England, must protect his virtue from the advances of several women, including Lady Booby, and Betty, a chambermaid." *** "With 'Shamala, ' published in 1741, Fielding set about exposing by brilliant parody the more vulnerable aspects of Samuel Richardson's phenomenally successful 'Pamela.' In the following year he offered, quite deliberately, his own alternative conception of art and purpose of the novel: 'Joseph Andrews' achieved immediate popularity. The story of Joseph's dogged determination, against all odds, cling to his virtue is almost incidental in one of the richest, sanest, funniest and most attractive novels in the language. Drawn, as Fielding says, in imitation of Cervantes, its Don Quixote is the unforgettable Parson Adams -- the unique embodiement of a vigorous, innocent and rational enjoyment of life and the first great comic character in fiction."
Amelia by Henry Fielding( Book )

316 editions published between 1750 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 2,755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With its combination of satire and sentiment, its focus on the seedy side of London life, and its unexpected shifts in tone, Amelia has intrigued and disturbed readers since its first publication. Eagerly awaited by Henry Fielding's eighteenth-century readers of Tom Jones, the novel perplexed many of them. Amelia counters the traditional courtship plot of eighteenth-century novels with its convincing portrayal of a marriage between an errant husband and his wife, and is ahead of its time in its depiction of the alienation of modern city life

The real-life Jonathan Wild, gangland godfather and self-styled "Thief-taker General," controlled much of the London underworld until he was executed for his crimes in 1725.
