Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Historian Crane here offers an abridgment of her complete three-volume edition of The Diary of Elizabeth Drinker (LJ 6/1/ 91). Now affordable by even the smallest collections, this extraordinary diary documents 50 years of Drinker's life in Philadelphia, from Colonial times until her death in 1807. The diary provides a wealth of detail on family life, trade, education, health and medicine, race relations, and Colonial-Loyalist frictions from the perspective of an articulate, well-to-do Quaker woman. The overall tone conveys her love and concern for others as well as her adherence to Quaker principles of pacifism and egalitarianism. For a sampling of other contemporary women's diaries and journals, see Elizabeth Evans's Weathering the Storm: Women of the American Revolution (LJ 10/1/75). Appropriate for women's studies, U.S. social history, and general interest collections.-Patricia A. Beaber, Trenton State Coll. Lib., N.J.
