This digital gallery from the New York Public Library (NYPL) was prepared for an exhibition of the same name that was presented at NYPL in 2005. It consists primarily of page spreads from printed materials dating from the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Written for and by women, these texts and images cover topics ranging from Adultery to Violence against women, with Girls, Grief, Kissing, and all sorts of other subjects in between. Typical titles include, The young woman's guide to virtue, economy, and happiness, and, Elements of morality, an advice book for children and parents with 50 copperplate illustrations, translated by Mary Wollstonecraft, who was later recognized as an influential early feminist. Individual items can also be viewed on the new NYPL Digital Collection website (http://digitalcollections.nypl.org/items/510d47e0-17d0-a3d9-e040-e00a18064a99 ), which is a bit more user friendly.
