This set represents a collection of rare British fictions published from the late eighteenth to the mid-nineteenth century, featuring a governess as the heroine. Featuring facsimile reprints of the first editions of six novels which are all difficult to find in academic libraries in the UK or the US, this set is a valuable resource for all students and scholars of Victorian Studies and Literature.
From Shigeo Yokoyama's Introduction:
Despite considerable critical attention accorded to them, most of the governess novels have been rarely read not least due to their inaccessibility. Only a handful of libraries in Britain and the US hold the copies of them. I hope the present collection, though much limited in its comprehensiveness, might fill to some extent this gap which has existed for a long period of time by providing valuable primary sources for the students and scholars of nineteenth-century British fiction as well as cultural and women's history.

Paul Laurence Dunbar (June 27, 1872 February 9, 1906) was an American poet, novelist, and playwright of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Born in Dayton, Ohio, to parents who had been enslaved in Kentucky before the American Civil War, Dunbar began to write stories and verse when still a child and was president of his high school's literary society. He published his first poems at the age of 16 in a Dayton newspaper.
