Abstract:

Bridges the gap in available English- language sources on women from 12 European countries and their work in the biological, medical, mathematical, and social sciences. With material organized into country chapters, the book analyzes the work of 19th-century women whose journal publications are listed in the London Royal Society's Catalogue of Scientific Papers, 1800-1900, the major index of scientific journal literature for the period. Some of the women discussed will be fairly well-known to American readers, but the work of many more has been brought to light here.
