Camilla Crosland (1812-1895) was a British author whose literary
career spanned sixty years of the nineteenth century. Although best
known as a poet, she was also a prolific writer of short stories,
novels and articles. In the late 1850s she became involved with
spiritualism, and published influential works on the subject. This
volume, first published in 1893, contains her detailed
autobiography. Crosland describes her long life chronologically,
describing the aftermath of the Battle of Waterloo in 1815, the
death of George III and the characters and lives of the many
influential authors she met during her career. She also provides
anecdotes and detailed descriptions of early Victorian society and
the development of literature to appeal to a broader readership.
This volume provides a fascinating retrospect of early Victorian
social life. For more information on this author, see
