Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 1.3in.Harriet Martineau (1802-1876) was an English writer and philosopher, renowned in her day as a controversial journalist, political economist, abolitionist and life-long feminist. In 1821 she began to write anonymously for the Monthly Repository, a Unitarian periodical, and in 1823 she published Devotional Exercises and Addresses, Prayers and Hymns. She had to earn her living, and, being precluded by deafness from teaching, took up authorship in earnest.
