Julia Pardoe was born in 1806 in Beverley, the daughter of a veteran of Waterloo. She travelled extensively abroad during her adolescence, an unusual experience for a girl of her time.
Her novels and a couple of travel books:
1) Lord Morcar of Hereward, a romance of the times of William the Conqueror (1829, 4 vols); only volume 4 is available.
2) Speculation (1834, 3 vols) - page 1 of vol 1 is missing, so we have added the first volume of another set.
3) The Mardens and the Daventrys (1835, tales, 3 vols)
4) The City of the Sultan; and, domestic manners of the Turks (1837, 2 vols)
5) The Romance of the Harem (1839, 3 vols, with 2 versions of vol 1)
It is also available in JP07; and here too is an 1857 version in one volume from the British Library:
6) The Hungarian Castle (1842, 3 vols)
7) Confessions of a Pretty Woman (1846, originally in 3 vols, now available only in a transatlantic collection: Complete [sic] Works, circa 1849)
8) The Jealous Wife (1847, 3 volumes in one file)
9) The Rival Beauties (1848, 3 vols)
10) Flies in Amber (1850, 3 vols, short stories)
11) Reginald Lyle (1854, 3 vols); this 1854 edition is in one volume
12) Lady Arabella; or, The Adventures of a Doll (1856) at the British Library but not available for down-load
13) The Wife's Trials (1849?). Not at the British Library; available only in the "Complete Works". Not the same as The Jealous Wife.
14) Abroad and at Home: Tales Here and There (1857)
15) The Thousand and One Days (1857)
16) Pilgrimages in Paris (1857)
17) The Poor Relation (1858, 3 vols)

Our intention is to include, where possible, djvu versions of the first editions. Wherever such is unavailable, which is often, the closest available alternative is provided. A suitable djvu reader is Sumatra, which may be down-loaded from sumatrapdfreader.org/ Linux users might turn to Evince.
There are several others; look at sourceforge.net/projects/djvu/files/
