Richardson, Samuel


Richardson's novels started the ball rolling, and Pamela certainly generated controversy. Was this a moralist's tale or thinly disguised pornography? Pamela fights off the advances of her employer and writes copiously to her parents back home. Edited with Explanatory Notes by Thomas Keymer and Alice Wakely. Very good clean copy. Great notes and glossary of interesting words. Originally published in 1740. List $9.95. OUP 2001. Paper, 546 pgs. USED. $7.00
