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

1,843 editions published between 1738 and 2014 in 21 languages and held by 17,741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 )

1,237 editions published between 1742 and 2014 in 14 languages and held by 9,257 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 )

344 editions published between 1743 and 2014 in 11 languages and held by 3,058 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

Contains two novels by Henry Fielding, including "Joseph Andrews," the story of a footman in eighteenth-century English who must protect his virtue from the advances of several women; and "Shamela," a parody of Samuel Richardson's novel of a servant girl whose virtuous behavior is rewarded with marriage
