8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 167 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"--

This historic book may have numerous typos, missing text or index. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. 1748. Not illustrated. Excerpt: ... LETTER VI. CONTAINING A Description of the greatest Part of the Principality of Wales. Thought I should not pay the Principality the Respect it so well deserves, if I did not begin a Letter with the Description of it; it being the Country of that brave People, who had an original Right to the whole Island, and made so noble a Stand in Defence of their Liberties and Independency; and, at last, rather than submit to a foreign Yoke, chose to be free in this remote and inaccessible Part of it. But here let me premise, that Wales is represented in the British Parliament by .24 Members. The Counties and Towns which return them will be particulariz'd in the general List, which I shall present you with at the End of my Tour thro' this Southern Part of the Island (a). The two first Counties which border West upon Monmouthshire are Brecknock and Glamorgan, and are ery mountainous on the East Side, which gives a (.} See at the Conclusion of Vol. III. Traveler Traveler a terrible Apprehension of the Country he is this way entering into, and an Expectation of meeting with nothing that is agreeable; but he is not long before he is undeceived, and finds the Reward of his Trouble. In that Part of Monmouthjhire which joins the two Counties, begins the Rising of the Hills. Kyrton-Beacon, Tumbcrlow, Blorench, Penvail, and Skirridan, are some of the Names of these horrid Mountains, and are all in this Shire; and I could not but fansy myself in View of Mount Brennus, Little-Barnard, and Great-Barnard, among the Æps. We now entered South Wales; which contains the Shires of Glamorgan, Brecknock, Radnor, Caermarthen, Pembroke, and Cardigan. Brecknock/hire is a mere inland County, as Radnor is; the Englijh jestingly (and I think not very improperly) call it Break-neck-J
