Brilliant women : 18th-century bluestockings by Elizabeth Eger( Book )
13 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 545 libraries worldwide
During the eighteenth century a remarkable group of women formed the Bluestocking Salon--a name derived from the sartorial preference of one of the members--where women and men met to debate contemporary ideas and promote the life of the mind. Together, these cultural innovators helped forge new roles for women as influential thinkers, writers, and artists, and their creative achievements were publicly celebrated -- from cover
Women, writing, and the public sphere : 1700-1830 ( Book )
14 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and held by 485 libraries worldwide
Examining the dynamic relation between women and the public sphere between 1700 and 1830, this text draws on literary and visual evidence to raise questions of scandal and display, improvement, virtue and morality
Bluestockings : women of reason from Enlightenment to Romanticism by Elizabeth Eger( Book )
15 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 465 libraries worldwide
"Bluestockings participated in the first wide-scale creation of a national culture. Exploring the tension between individual and collective models of authorship, Eger draws on visual and printed materials and unpublished manuscripts to argue for the enduring relevance of rational argument in the history of womens' writing"--Provided by publisher
Luxury in the eighteenth century : debates, desires and delectable goods by Maxine Berg( Book )
23 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 341 libraries worldwide
"This volume explores the political, economic and moral effects of the production and consumption of luxury goods, tying the concept to contemporary discourse on taste, civility and sensibility, aesthetics and literary genres. This cultural history provides a broadly-based focus on luxury in a series of tightly linked sections addressing key themes of economic debate, material culture, aesthetic principles, luxury as a female vice and the exotic."--Jacket

Bluestocking feminism by Sarah Robinson Scott( Book )
12 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and held by 23 libraries worldwide
Eighteenth-century Bluestocking women were, on the whole, an upper-class and politically and socially conservative group. For this reason, their writings have been largely neglected in feminist and literary history. In recent decades, however, feminist scholarship and criticism has retrieved the Bluestocking women from their marginal position in eighteenth-century literature. This work collects the principal writings of these women, together with a selection of their letters. Each volume is annotated and all texts are edited and reset. The collection will be of interest to students of eighteenth century history, literature, culture and gender studies
