A Battle of the Books: Recorded by an Unknown Writer, for the Use of Authors and Publishers: To the First for Doctrine, to the Second for Reproof, to Both for Correction and for Instruction in Righteousness (Classic Reprint) by Gail Hamilton (Paperback / softback, 2015)
Excerpt from A Battle of the Books: Recorded by an Unkwn Writer, for the Use of Authors and Publishers: To the First for Doctrine, to the Second for Reproof, to Both for Correction and for Instruction in Righteousness The papers comprising the following narrative, called A Battle of the Books, were found in my state-room after a violent storm, during a long and dangerous sea-voyage which I was once forced to undertake. They were much stained with salt-water, but were for the most part legible. The name of the author or compiler is t given; tut I judge, somewhat from the chirography, chiefly from incontestable internal evidence, that the writer is a woman. As this evidence will unfold itself to the reader in the course of the narrative, I shall t dwell upon it; r is it, indeed, a matter of importance, except as it bears upon the question of the participation in the government by both sexes.
