More than twenty-five years ago, when Legacy commenced publication, the editors instituted a bibliographic feature that promised to note every publication related to the journal’s areas of focus. As a result of the journal’s success and the field’s phenomenal growth, the number of such publications has burgeoned. Fortunately, the ways of accessing that bibliographic information have increased in sophistication and are now easily accessible by anyone with internet access. Therefore, the bookshelf for 29.1 will mark our final such listing. We thank all the graduate students over the past years who have worked so hard to make this information available to SSAWW members and Legacy subscribers and readers.
Below is a selected sampling of current books, articles, and dissertations relevant to the study of American women writers from the seventeenth through the early twentieth centuries. Prices, unless otherwise indicated, are for hardcover editions.
