This catalogue, made to accompany the exhibition held at the Grolier Club from March 11 to May 2, 1998, expresses the voices of American women writers through their books. The catalogue explores the movement of women writers in America, beginning with the homespun verse of Ann Bradstreet (the first volume of poetry published by any American) and closing with the appearance of Edith Wharton's highly polished "Age of Innocence" (winner of the 1921 Pulitzer Prize for the best American novel). It is intended to be an overview of the works of authors who reflect the historical concerns of women living in America and the emerging voice of the American woman writer. The book also includes a frontispiece in color and a full-page illustration in black-and-white. It was designed and typeset by Katy Homans, and printed by the Stinehour Press.
