Quarter bound in cloth with patterened paper over boards. Clean, small copy 7in x 4in.

Published first in 1722, Moll Flanders tells the story of an eighteenth century woman who takes fate into her own hands by developing his skills as a thief and con artist. Traveling back and forth between England and the United States (or from one con to another), Moll’s story rejects the antiquated notion of female dependence and demonstrates the full potential of a woman’s endurance and autonomy.
