Roxana, the fortunate mistress; or, A history of the life and vast variety of fortunes of Mademoiselle de Beleau, afterwards called the Countess de Wintselsheim in Germany, being the person known by the name of the Lady Roxana in the time of Charles II by Daniel Defoe( Book )
109 editions published between 1724 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 1,995 libraries worldwide
"Roxana (1724), Defoe's last and darkest novel, is the autobiography of a woman who has traded her virtue, at first for survival, and then for fame and fortune. Its narrator tells the story of her own 'wicked' life as the mistress of rich and powerful men. A resourceful adventuress, she is also an unforgiving analyst of her own susceptibilities, who tells us of the price she pays for her successes. Endowed with many seductive skills, she is herself seduced: by money, by dreams of rank, and by the illusion that she can escape her own past. Unlike Defoe's other penitent anti-heroes, however, she fails to triumph over these weaknesses." "Roxana's fame lies not only in the heroine's 'vast variety of fortunes', but in her attempts to understand the sometimes bitter lessons of her life as a 'Fortunate Mistress'. Defoe's achievement was to invent, in 'Roxana', a gripping story-teller as well as a gripping story."--Jacket

Daniel Defoe's great talent as a writer was to speak in the voices of others. Such was the authenticity of this memoir of a 17th-century soldier of fortune that for over half a century it was considered to be genuine. The struggle of the narrator to turn his observations into facts and to make certain history out of his uncertain experiences combines with vivid descriptions of the battles of the Civil War to give the narrative its dramatic qualities

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
