About the Site

Rebecca Harding Davis: Collected Works provides access to a selection of Davis’s writing and personal letters. 

Brief Editorial Policy

Unless otherwise indicated, the copy-text for all work published during Davis’s lifetime will be the first published appearance in periodical or book form. Transcriptions are based on publicly available texts using OCR (when available) and hand transcription.  Transcriptions retain original spelling and punctuation and do not attempt to replicate typographic features (ornamentation, typeface, or other aspects of house style) of the original periodical or book publication. Errors in the copy-text (such as obvious mispellings) will be marked with [sic].

Each text includes annotations in explanatory notes provided at the end of the text. Due to technical difficulties, please scroll to the end of text to access explanatory notes.

We welcome contact from anyone who wishes to contribute to the archive.  If you would like to transcribe a text or contribute a "Cultural Context" essay (a short 500 word piece on an issue relevant to Davis's life and work), please contact the Site Administrator for more information.
