The three series of Printed Writings (1500-1640, 1641-1700, and 1701-1750) provide a comprehensive, if not entirely complete, collection of separately published writings by women.
In reprinting these writings it is intended to remedy one of the major obstacles to the advancement of feminist criticism of the early modern period, namely the unavailability of the very texts upon which the field is based.
The volumes in the facsimile library reproduce carefully chosen copies of these texts, incorporating a short introduction providing an overview of the life and work of a writer along with a survey of important scholarship. Printed Writings 1641-1700, Series II, Part Two consists of nine volumes of writings grouped by genre.
The set comprises the following titles: Volume 1: An Collins Volume 2: Alicia D'Anvers Volume 3: Eliza Volume 4: Amey Hayward Volume 5: Anne Killigrew Volume 6: Elizabeth Major Volume 7: Elizabeth Singer [Rowe] Volume 8: Ephelia Volume 9: Grace Norton [Gethin] and Frances (Freke) Norton
