This guide provides a list of notable works published in Britain, the United States, and France throughout the 19th century. During the 19th century social movements such as abolitionism, women's suffrage, temperance, and the worker's rights movement challenged the traditional social order. New scientific advancements and theories offered both a higher quality of life and caused people to question long-established beliefs. The 19th Century was also home to some of the most famous writers in the English language, many of whom created works that are still read and analyzed today.
The works presented in this guide are from the Literature and Rare Books collection in Special Collections and University Archives, located in Hornbake Library. For more information about our holdings contact us!
