Godey's Lady's Book: Hope Greenberg 

Godey's Lady's Book: Hope Greenberg presents highlights from volumes of this publication from 1855 through a858 as well as a link to the University of Vermont's electronic text copies of three full issues from 1855 as well as a partial issue from 1852.

Godey's came from that great groundswell of "Ladies Magazines" which helped to form that era's idea of womanhood amongst its middle class readers. They also provided a ready form of advertising for the companies that were beginning to mass market their threads, fabrics and patterns for needlework.
