Perhaps the most influential English novel of the 18th century, Pamela became an instant bestseller on its publication in 1740. In epistolary form, it tells of a 15-year-old maidservant's attempts to escape the clutches of her lecherous employer. This new edition features an authoritative text, introduction and explanatory notes, while the appendices include Richardson's foreword to the second edition and the 29 elegant engravings from the edition of 1742.
