Fiction Without Romance, a Digital Edition

Fiction Without Romance; or The Locket-Watch (1830) contains two volumes and no chapters. The novel was printed once by Wertheimer and Son in the East End. It was published later the same year by Effingham Wilson. The novel has never been reprinted. I've identified six extant copies of the novel. 

For a discussion of the novel's cultural contexts see Heidi Kaufman, "Romance in Maria Polack's Fiction Without Romance (1830)," Romantic Circles Praxis Series, “The Sundry Faces of Nineteenth-Century Anglo-Jewish Literature,” ed. Karen Weisman (November 2020).
