These materials are among the oldest in LSE and The Women's Library LSE collections, and reflect the changing historical attitudes towards women's role in society from the 16th century through to the early 20th century. Due to their age, many of these works are quite fragile; the digitisation allows them to be widely accessible for the first time. The works are also fully text-searchable so that users can find the resources they need quickly. The books below were all written during the 17th century, and cover a range of topics portraying women in very different ways. Some were intended to be read by women, such as 'Countrey Contentments' and 'The Queen-Like Closet', which include recipes for cordials and medicines, and other household matters such as laundry and baking. Other works in this section were written and published around the time of the English Civil War, and show women in a more active light, petitioning Parliament for the cessation of hostilities.
