The Women’s Print History Project, 1750-1836 is a comprehensive bibliographical database of women’s contributions to print for one of the most convulsive periods in both women’s and print history. We collect detailed information about books that women were involved in producing, not just as authors, but also as printers, publishers, booksellers, editors, compilers, translators, engravers, illustrators, and composers. In addition to detailed bibliographical information about the material components of the book, we record basic data about the people and firms that produced them, allowing us to trace the networks and relationships that structured the book trades.
