About this Item

Haderslev, 1806. 8:o. 32 pp. A titel vignette depicting Stokkenbeck wearing men's clothes. Sewn and uncut. New backstrip. "The widely-travelled woman, E. M. Stokkenbeck's, as the tailor's apprentice, Gotfried Jacob Eichstedt, remarkable events during her journeys on land and sea, in Denmark, Holland, Germany, Bohemia, Poland and Spain, until her last arrival to Copenhagen, where her sex was revealed. Published by herself".Bibliotheca danica supplement 401. The author claims that she was born in Hamburg 1759 and that she came to Copenhagen at the age of 15. There she married over-hastily, and left the city in order to avoid her husband. Since she was married she had problems to get an employment, which led her to the idea to pose and dress like a man. She thereafter travelled the continent as an apprentice to a tailor before returning to Copenhagen where her true identity eventually was revealed. King Christian VII gave her a charter, which is reprinted here, to work as a tailor in the city and she was also allowed to keep an apprentice. In her foreword, Engelbrecht states that she does not recommend anyone to follow her example, and hopes that no one will be tempted to do so. Bookseller Inventory # 48792A
