American Women Writers: Bibliography 1830-1839

Picture of Harriet Beecher Stowe

Compiler's Notes:

Whenever possible I authenticated bibliography entries in the National Union Catalog [NUC]. When not listed there, on-line sources were OCLC, the American Antiquarian Society on-line catalog [AAS], and the Library of Congress on-line catalog. I confirmed several dates in Notable American Women 1607-1950 and in Sarah Josepha Hale's Woman's Record, 1855.

We tried to include all known published work by American women in the 19th century. Women's publications in periodicals and newspapers, and entries for women who edited newspapers and periodicals were not included. The numbers were felt to be beyond the scope of this initial project.

I arranged the bibliographies chronologically within each writer's listing in order to provide a more immediate and visual sense of the literary history of each writer and of the period. The separate chronological listings by year are meant to further the ability to look at patterns and progressions and to serve as an overview.

I copied the idiosyncratic capitalization of titles verbatim from the catalog sources, presumably from the title pages of the texts. I decided to retain this rather than conventionalize to current standards or even 19th century standards, although it may simply represent inaccurate transcription from text to catalog. It was not possible for me to examine each original text

I left question marks in place where information is questionable or unobtainable. I eagerly invite corrections, suggestions, and answers.

The student compilers of the original 1830s bibliography which I utilized for this on-line version were Wendy Merrick Burbank, Katharina Marbach, Eiko Owada, Corinna Rodewald, and Julia Tobin.
