The History of Jemmy and Jenny Jessamy

The History of Jemmy and Jenny Jessamy, originally published as three volumes in 1753, is the last work by the prolific English novelist Eliza Haywood. Out of print since the early nineteenth century and never available in an edited and fully-annotated modern edition such as this, Haywood's novel is an important early example of the sentimental novel of domestic manners. In its depiction of marriage and courtship among the leisure class of the mid-eighteenth century, Haywood's novel is remarkable for its unsentimental realism.

Reviews

"A welcome addition to 18th-century surveys as well as courses on the development of the British novel."—Eighteenth-Century Intelligencer

"Provides a short but helpful introduction to Haywood's overall work and to the current volume along with editorial notes and selected bibliography. . . . Recommended."—Choice

"Energetic and sound, Richetti's introduction is clearly written, critically relevant, and eminently useful."—Cynthia Wall, University of Virginia
