History of Pamela
Pamela tells the story of a fifteen year-old maidservant named Pamela Andrews, whose employer, Mr. B, a wealthy landowner, makes unwanted and inappropriate advances towards her after the death of his mother. Pamela strives to reconcile her strong religious training with her desire for the approval of her employer in a series of letters and, later in the novel, journal entries all addressed to her impoverished parents. This is Richardson’s famous novel in a 1769 abridgement, done in such a manner that it would be acceptable for young ladies and children. It contains the engravings of the original 106 pages and is bound in a re-enforced marbled wrap binding. With a size of “3.5 x 5.25” it is perfect for the pocket, haversack, or sack.
