Evelina, or, The history of a young lady's entrance into the world by Fanny Burney( Book )
315 editions published between 1778 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 6,137 libraries worldwide
A work by turns hilarious and grim, Evelina tells the story of a young woman's education in the ways of the world, vividly rendering life in eighteenth-century England. Raised by a pastor after her mother died and her father abandoned her, Evelina leaves the seclusion of the country for her first season out, encounters all manner of people'from prospective husbands to rakes to vulgar relatives'and endures all manner of trials before she achieves her final triumph. "Before Evelina," W.D. Howells proclaimed, "the heart of girlhood had never been so fully opened in literature." Samuel Johnson called Burney "a real wonder" and Thomas Babington Macaulay wrote, "We owe to [Burney], not only Evelina, Cecilia, and Camilla, but also Mansfield Park and The Absentee."
Camilla, [or], A picture of youth by Fanny Burney( file )
167 editions published between 1796 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 4,238 libraries worldwide
First published in 1796, Camilla deals with the matrimonial concerns of a group of young people-Camilla Tyrold and her sisters, the daughters of a country parson, and their cousin Indiana Lynmere-and, in particular, with the love affair between Camilla herself and her eligible suitor, EdgarMandlebert. The path of true love, however, is strewn with intrigue, contretemps and misunderstanding. An enormously popular eighteenth-century novel, Camilla is touched at many points by the advancing spirit of romanticism. As in Evelina, Fanny Burney weaves into her novel strands of light and dark, comic episodes and gothic shudders, and creates a pattern of social and moral dilemmas whichemphasize and illuminate the gap between generations
Cecilia, or, Memoirs of an heiress by Fanny Burney( Book )
321 editions published between 1782 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 3,649 libraries worldwide
Cecilia this fair traveller had lately entered into the one-and-twentieth year of her age. Her ancestors had been rich farmers in the county of Suffolk though her father in whom a spirit of elegance had supplanted the rapacity of wealth had spent his time as a private country gentleman satisfied without increasing his store to live upon what he inherited from the labours of his predecessors
Evelina by Fanny Burney( Book )
130 editions published between 1778 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,632 libraries worldwide
"This edition reprints the text of Burney's classic novel together with a broad selection of documents on life in eighteenth-century England that have been carefully chosen to put the work in historical and cultural context."--BOOK JACKET. "Special attention is given to eighteenth-century conduct literature, including Burney's own reactions to her society's codes of behavior for the young lady. In addition, the documents include first-hand descriptions of fashionable English society at the end of the eighteenth century from observers both inside and outside of its folds as well as materials on the often violent underside of the British trade and military expansion that helped construct the fashionable world Burney's heroine enters."--BOOK JACKET. "A general introduction providing historical and cultural background, a chronology of Burney's life and times, introductions to each thematic group of documents, headnotes, extensive annotations, a selected bibliography, and a generous selection of maps and illustrations make this a definitive scholarly edition of this classic work of eighteenth-century literature."--Jacket
Evelina, or, A young lady's entrance into the world by Fanny Burney( Book )
81 editions published between 1778 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 1,020 libraries worldwide
"Frances Burney is often remembered for her connections with major eighteenth-century literary figures, such as Johnson, Burke, Reynolds, and Thrale. She was famous in her own day, however, for her literary oeuvre, and her reputation was established largely on the grounds of her first novel, Evelina. Published anonymously in 1778, it is an epistolary account of a sheltered young woman's entrance into society and her experience of family. Its comedy ranges from the violent practical joking reminiscent of Smollett's fiction to the witty repartee that would influence Austen." "The Broadview edition is the only one available based on the second edition of the novel (1779), which incorporates Burney's revisions and corrections. Its appendices include contemporary reviews of Evelina as well as eighteenth-century works on the family and on comedy."--Jacket

The witlings ; and, the woman-hater by Fanny Burney( Book )
11 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 394 libraries worldwide
"This Broadview edition pairs two of Frances Burney's linked comedies. They both present the character of Lady Smatter, a "femme savante" whose lineage may be traced back to Moliere; they both centre on the misfortunes of the "elle" figure, the dispossessed heiress and wife who appears frequently in Burney's fiction; and they both criticize a culture of misogyny that breeds suspicion and resentment. The Witlings, lighter and more comic, derives from late seventeenth-century conventions; The Woman-Hater, more melodramatic, both expresses and warns against the excessive sensibility of romanticism. Together, these two plays constitute a miniature history of English drama from the Restoration to the French Revolution and beyond." "This edition contains a valuable selection of appendices, including: Burney's "Epilogue to Gerilda"; letters and diary entries; contemporary writings on comedy; and Burney's cast-list for The Woman-Hater."--BOOK JACKET
