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 1500-1640, Series I, Part Four consists of five volumes of writings by early modern Englishwomen.
The set comprises the following titles: Volume 1: Elizabeth Evelinge III Volume 2: Catherine Greenbury and Mary Percy Volume 3: Julian of Norwich; Marjorie Kempe and Juliana Berners Volume 4: Anne Campbell Volume 5: Anne Phoenix
