First, it strikes me that Sara Teasdale's books I have written aout (or merely meant to? oh, la) must be placed i contect of suely some of these, which I haven't read (as I have read Teasdale):
Fourteen Months in Canton, Mrs. John Henry Gry, 1880. (probably not)
Eileen Bigland (slushy novels!)
Emily May Crawford
One problem with the source book is that it is listing mostly British women, witha few Americans -- the wmen are early writers of travel / discovery / adventure in English, as Eglish women. I.e., the first white woman to climb mount x, or an english lady in the wild west.
