During the nineteenth century, women played an important role in creating works of scientific communication despite their exclusion from the professional world of science. Maria Edgeworth and Sarah Trimmer wrote key texts about scientific methodology, as did a number of lesser-known women (including several who published anonymously.) This online exhibit from the George A. Smathers Library at the University of Florida is dedicated to these important authors and their texts. This online exhibit, which accompanies a 2015 physical exhibit at the library, was curated by Suzan A. Alteri of the Baldwin Library of Historical Children's Literature (home to much of the material in this exhibit) and by Dr. Alan Rauch, an English professor at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte.
