Sometimes regarded as the first romance novel, Samuel Richardson's Pamela, or Virtue Rewarded tells the story of a 15-year-old maid named Pamela, whose master, Mr. B, is infatuated by her beauty and intelligence.  Unable to propose marriage because of his high rank, Mr. B kidnaps Pamela and locks her away in one of his homes. While Pamela hates her master at the beginning, she comes to realize his true nature and falls in love. A comment on the class structure in English society, the novel was very popular upon its publication in 1740, but came under much criticism because of its perceived vulgarity

Early works by Samuel Richardson( )

8 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 733 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first edition to assemble all of the earliest known works by Samuel Richardson (1689-1761), one of the most influential authors in the English tradition. Richardson's exercises in conduct-writing, religious controversialism, anti-theatrical polemic, occasional verse, literary criticism - and his popular and surprisingly revealing edition of Aesop's Fables - resonate throughout his later work while claiming ample legitimacy of their own. Readers familiar with only Pamela, Clarissa and Sir Charles Grandison will gain a fresh appreciation of the genesis of and the historical and cultural complexities at work in these famous novels, and readers new to Richardson will encounter an agile writer who invites closer consideration. A lengthy introduction situates the constituent works in Richardson's career as well as in the period more broadly, and the extensive textual apparatus records the bibliographical histories of the texts and their treatment by their present editor"--
Pamela in her exalted condition by Samuel Richardson( )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pamela in Her Exalted Condition follows the heroine of Richardson's hugely popular first novel into married life. In the process, he explores both the experience of women beyond the stage of courtship and provides a fascinating insight into the social and cultural life of the mid eighteenth century. The first ever scholarly edition of the novel, this volume features a critically edited text, general and textual introductions, full annotations and textual apparatus. Appendices describe all the editions published in Richardson's lifetime as well as early nineteenth-century editions. The original illustrations from the popular octavo edition of 1742 and Richardson's index are reproduced. The publication of this novel in the Cambridge edition allows the sequel to Pamela to take its rightful place in the critical study of Richardson's development as a novelist"--
