Vertue Rewarded Or The Irish Princess Book Description:

Vertue Rewarded; or, The Irish Princess, A New Novel, was first published in 1693 and has never been reprinted until now, almost 300 years since that first publication. An intriguing feature of the work is that its author is unknown and likely to remain so. Only two copies appear to have survived, one of which is in the Bodleian Library, the other in the British Museum. The present text is taken from the British Museum copy. Set in the year 1690, the story is of a foreign prince serving in the army of King William of Orange, billeted in the town of Clonmel, in Ireland. On his first day in the town, the prince falls heavily in love with a Clonmel girl. He is determined to have an affair with the girl and makes numerous attempts to seduce her. Finally, the girl's virtue is rewarded by the prince's agreeing to marry her, and she becomes an 'Irish Princess'.
