Journal of Emily Shore

Provides the first complete presentation of the transcribed journals of Emily Shore, a young Victorian woman of extraordinary talent. Emily Shore read widely – economics, botany, zoology – and was an amateur botanist and ornithologist who catalogued the natural world around her home and wrote essays on bird behavior. She also wrote poetry and plays and was a keen observer of life and culture before her death at the age of 19 from tuberculosis. Her journals cover the the years 1831 – 1839 (ages 11 – 19) and include two of the journals which were not know at the time of the printed edition. Supplemented with maps and illustrations. Would provide an interesting comparison with the same years from Queen Victoria’s Journals, which Baylor also owns
