Review

"Identification of primary sources on women continues to be critical for scholarship in women's history, and this compilation extends the work done by Patricia Crawford (Women's Published Writings 1600-1700, ' in Women in English Society 1500-1800, ed. by M. Prior, CH, Nov'85) and Elaine Hobby (Virtue of Necessity: English Women's Writing 1649-88, 1989). Smith (University of Cincinnati, and author of Reason's Disciples: Seventeenth-Century English Feminists, CH, Mar'83) and Cardinale (Anthologies by and about Women: An Analytical Index, CH, Sep'82) have compiled an extensive bibliography of works by, for, and about women of the 17th century. Based primarily on D.G. Wings's Short-title Catalogue (1945-51), as well as the UMI microfilm collections Early English Books, 1641-1700, and The Thomason Tracts . . . 1640-1661, Part I includes annotated references to 637 works by women, ranging from religious tracts to social and political broadsides; Part II includes nearly 1,000 annotated entries to works written for and about women's issues and lives during the period. Although access to the sources may prove difficult for many students, a wealth of information is included in the annotations, enhanced by both chronological and general subject indexes. Recommended for academic libraries which support women's studies programs."-Choice

." . . an excellent bibliography, and one that will be extremely useful to anyone seeking primary source material on women or on the seventeenth century."-College and Research Libraries

"A well-annotated bibliography offering descriptions and assessments of over 1,600 works written 1641-1700. Writings by women include religious and literaty works, petitions, journals and diaries, commentaries on women's social position and domestic role, and philosophical treatises. Works for and about women discuss such topics as medicine, sexuality, domestic and religious duties."-Reference & Research Book News

"Hilda Smith and Susan Cardinal compile Women and the Literature of the Seventeenth Century an annotated bibliographical reference based upon the Wing Short-Title Catalogue. Over a thousand works ranging from social and political writings to journal entries and philosophical reviews are included, with writings and accompanying notes providing unusually complex details on the scope and nature of the writings of this period."-The Bookwatch
