Dedicated to the preservation of early modern women writings, this collection consists of over two hundred and thirty digitized manuscripts originally composed between 1500 and 1700 in the British Isles and now located in fifteen libraries and archives in North America and United Kingdom. The collection encompasses devotional writings, autobiographic material, cookery and medical recipes, accounts and much more.
Some 600 of the plays are published here for the first time, including a number by major authors.
The plays themselves have been selected using leading bibliographies and with the editorial advice of James V. Hatch, co-author with Errol G. Hill of A History of African American Theatre and a leading expert in this area.
