Penelopes vveb : vvherein a christall myrror of fæminine perfection represents to the viewe of euery one those vertues and graces, which more curiously beautifies the mynd of women, then eyther sumptuous apparell, or iewels of inestimable valew: the one buying fame with honour, the other breeding a kynd of delight, but with repentance. In three seuerall discourses also are three especiall vertues, necessary to be incident in euery vertuous woman, pithely discussed: namely obedience, chastitie, and sylence: interlaced with three seuerall and comicall histories. By Robert Greene Maister of Artes in Cambridge.
