Pamela - Vol I. (1740)
Pamela, or Virtue Rewarded, the sub-title gives a clue to the plot of the first and most successful of Richardson's novels. It sold four editions in six months, and is the first English novel to be written by a tradesman (the author was a printer) about a middle-class heroine for a middle-class public.
