About this Item: Birch & Small (pr. by Fry & Kammerer), Philadelphia, 1807. First American edition, following the London first of 1803. This encyclopedic collection of lives of famous (and infamous) women was compiled by controversial novelist, editor, and feminist Mary Hays, friend of Mary Wollstonecraft ? who is, curiously, not counted among the "illustrious and celebrated women" here. Among those who did make the cut are Sappho, Diane de Poitiers, Matoaks (a.k.a. Pocahontas), Susannah Centlivre, Charlotte Corday, Anne Boleyn, Mrs. Pilkington, and Anne Broadstreet (i.e., Bradstreet). Hays notes in her preface that "Women, unsophisticated by the pedantry of the schools, read not for dry information, to load their memories with uninteresting facts, or to make a display of a vain erudition . . . they require pleasure to be mingled with instruction, lively images, the graces of sentiment, and the polish of language" (vol. I, p. iii). These last things, she strives to supply herself! 8vo (22.3 cm, 8.8"). 3 vols. I: vi, [2], 488 pp. II: [4], 510, [2 (adv.)] pp. III: [4], 512 pp. Shaw & Shoemaker 12742; Sabin 31061. Period-style quarter tan cloth over blue-grey paper?covered sides, spines with printed paper labels. Title-page of each volume with the blind pressure- (not perforation-) stamp of a social club library. As in all copies we have had, pages age-toned, with a few foxed or spotted; occasional short edge tears, not extending into text. Three leaves in vol. II with tears in margin with loss of paper only and four other leaves in the same volume with loss of paper and either a few letters (pp. 107?10) or words (approximately half the words on each of five lines on pp. 151?52 and a word or three on each of five lines on 229?30). => A good resource and a good "read.".

About this Item: Richard Phillips, London, 1803. FIRST EDITION. Volume I: TP + [iii]-viii = Preface + [ix]-xxvi = Alphabetical Table of Contents + [1]-238 + *169-238* - 239-316;Volume II: TP + [1]-404; Volume III: TP + [1]-444; Volume IV: TP + [1]-504; Volume V: TP + [1]-527; Volume VI: TP + [1]-476; 12 mo. First Editions.Hay's "Preface" to Female Biographyis a bold, clear and lyrical announcement of her revolutionary intentions:My pen has been taken up in the cause and for the benefit of my own sex. For their improvement, and to their entertainment, my labours have been devoted I have at heart the happiness of my sex, and their advancement in the grand scale of rational and social existence. I perceive, with mingled concern and indignation, the follies andvices by which they suffer themselves to be degraded. If, through prudence or policy, the generous contention between the sexes for intellectual equality must be waved, be not, my amiable country-women, poorly content with the destination of the slave of an Eastern haram, with whom the season of youth forms the whole life! A woman who to the graces and gentleness of her own sex, adds the knowledge and fortitude of the other, exhibits the most perfect combination of human excellence. Let not the cold sarcasms of the pendant stifle your generous ardour in pursuit of what is praise-worthy: substitute as they fade, for the evanescent graces of youth, the more durable attractions of a cultivated mind; that, to the intoxicating homage of admiration and love, may succeed the calmer and not less gratifying tribute of friendship and esteem. To her who, sacrificing at the shrine of fashion, wastes her bloom in frivolity; who, trained but for the purposes of vanity and voluptuousness, and contemning the characteristic delicacy of her sex, dauntless obtrudes her charms on the public eye, the jest of the licentious, and the contempt of the severe; dreadful must be the approach of age, that season of collected thought and of repose to the passions, that will robe her of her only claim to distinction and regard. To excite a worthier emulation, the following memorial of those women, whose endowments, or whoseconduct, have reflected lustre upon the sex, is presented most especially to the rising generation, who have not grown old in folly, whose hearts have not been seared by fashion, and whose minds prejudice has not yet warped. In Female Biography, Hays created a dictionary of 294 impressivewomen culled from all ages of human history. The entries are arranged alphabetically starting with Abbassa (the sister of the fifth caliph and "the most beautiful and accomplished princess of the east") and ends with Zenobia (the queen of Palmyra whose "constitution was robust, her habit chaste, temperate, and hardy, while she excelled in every martial exercise. Her strong understanding, improved by study, rendered her not less able in the cabinet than formidable in the field"). In between, Hays presents the lives of Anna Marie Schurman, Margaret of Anjou, Ann Broadstreet [i.e. Bradstreet], Anne Boleyn, Joan of Arc, Aspasia and Mary Astell - just to mention seven of the sixty-eight women listed under the letter "A" in the Table of Content.While celebrating women of the past, Hays did not include several more contemporary female luminaries noting that "no character of eminence will, in the following work, I trust, be found omitted, except among those who have come nearer to our own times; of whom, for reasons unnecessary to be detailed, but few have been brought forward." Most notably missing is Hays great friend Mary Wollstonecraft whom she tended on her deathbed. Hays had, however, written an extensive adulatory obituary of Wollstonecraft which appeared shortly after Godwin's Memoirs of the Author of A Vindication of the Rights of Woman had created a storm of controversy regarding her life, her politics and, most especially, her morals. Hays and her writing received even less critical evaluation or academic attention than Wollstonecraft until the 20th century's eme. Seller Inventory # 1068
