Memoir of Jemima Wilkinson, a Preacheress of the Eighteenth Century; containing an authetic narrative of her life and character, and of the rise, progress, and conclusion of her ministry

By [WOMEN'S HISTORY & LITERATURE - RELIGION] [WILKINSON, Jemima] HUDSON, David

Bath, NY: R. L. Underwood & Co, 1844. [Second Edition]. Hardcover. Account of the life of Jemima Wilkinson (1752-1819), the Rhode Island-born Quaker and Evangelist who claimed after a long illness to have died and been risen from the dead. Through her preaching she became known as the "Universal Friend," creating a Shaker-like sect that practiced celibacy and poverty on a massive property she named "Jerusalem." Some have argued that Wilkinson was an imposter who accrued vast wealth from her followers (Howes describes her as "the first religious charlatan of her sex in America"). Indeed, the sect would not survive after her death. This work, first published in 1821, attributed to David Hudson (SABIN 33485 and HOWES H-761). See also "Appleton's Cyclopaedia of American Biography," Vol. 6, p. 512. 18mo (15.5cm.); publisher's full sheep, red gilt morocco spine label; viii,[9]-288pp.; portrait frontispiece.

By HAMILTON, Lady Augusta

London: Printed by and for J. Smith, 1822. Hardcover. The author's only published work from what we can surmise from holdings in the NUC.

Education makes a distinction...The superior force of the male is rather muscular that internal..." However, the conclusion reached based on the marriage rites of other parts of the globe, is that English women have nothing to complain about, "Though the indissolubility of marriage may occasionally press hard on some deserving individuals." Includes separate chapters on marriage rites in North American and South America, highlighting the Iriquois and Huron, Massachusetts Bay ("The custom of tarrying there"), Virginia ("The story of Pocahontas"), and New Orleans ("Women of colour").
