"My Booke of Rememberance"
The Autobiography of Elizabeth Isham
Editied by Isaac Stephens

After the recent discovery of a previously unknown
seventeenth-century autobiography written by Elizabeth Isham from the
manuscript collections of Princeton University, Isaac Stephens, a PhD
candidate in British history at the University of California,
Riverside, has produced an online edition of the autobiography and
posted it at the following URL:



In addition, the Northamptonshire Record Society Press is to publish
a forthcoming annotated edition of Stephens' transcription. The
autobiography is also the foundation of his nearly completed
dissertation, "In the Shadow of the Patriarch: Elizabeth Isham and
Her World in Seventeenth-Century Northamptonshire," a micro-history
on Isham's life and world. His dissertation and edition of Elizabeth
Isham's autobiography should prove of interest to both literary
scholars and historians alike.
