This catalog accompanied the 1996 University Libraries’ exhibition of material related to Eighteenth and Nineteenth Century British Women Writers. The exhibition covers a full chronological spectrum, and many of the "collector’s high points" of literature by women are displayed, including first editions of Wollstonecraft’s Vindication, Shelley’s Frankenstein, Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights, and Rossetti’s Goblin Market, as well as first editions by Austen, Charlotte and Anne Bronte, George Eliot and other well-known names.


This catalog and exhibition marked the occasion of the fifth Conference on Eighteenth & Nineteenth Century British Women Writers, held in Columbia on March 21-24, 1996.
