Memoirs of the author of A vindication of the rights of woman by William Godwin( Book )
4 editions published in 1798 in English and held by 87 libraries worldwide
"William Godwin's memoir of his wife, Mary Wollstonecraft, marks a transition in Godwin's philosophical development from extreme rationalism to the recognition of the moral importance of feeling and sympathy that was to energize his later writings. Memoirs also belongs to a tradition of biographical writing that sought to transform the consciousness of readers by using individual history as an agent of historical change. Written during the weeks following Wollstonecraft's early death, Memoirs provides an interpretation of the relations between Wollstonecraft's writings and her personal history, a candid account of her various relationships, and a vindication of her egalitarian intimacy with Godwin. This modern, scholarly edition, geared for student use, includes a wide range of primary sources, together with excerpts from Godwin's other writings and from his biographical models."--Jacket

The novel chronicles the fall from power of the Caliph Vathek (a fictionalized version of the historical Al-Wathiq), who renounces Islam and engages with his mother, Carathis, in a series of licentious and deplorable activities designed to gain him supernatural powers.

The Joseph Johnson letterbook' is the first scholarly edition of the correspondence of the influential Romantic-era publisher Joseph Johnson (1738-1809). Though those in Romantic-era studies know who Joseph Johnson was and why he mattered, but this adventurous, influential publisher and bookseller is not as widely known outside the field. Moreover, he has tended to appear in Romantic studies chiefly as a reference point in work on other figures. 'The Joseph Johnson letterbook', the first scholarly edition of his correspondence, offers a long overdue correction. Working with writers such as Mary Wollstonecraft, Joseph Priestly, Elizabeth Hamilton, William Blake, Charlotte Smith, and William Godwin (among many others), Johnson was the dynamic center of the London dissenting community, publishing and selling all manner of writing, all the while hosting parties and suppers that were sites of vital conversation. 'The Joseph Johnson letterbook' brings into print for the first time over two hundred of Johnson's letters from archives around the world
