Welcome to the Journal of Emily Shore: Revised and Expanded, edited by Barbara Timm Gates. Shortly after our print edition was issued in 1991, two manuscript volumes of Emily Shore’s journals surfaced and were acquired by the University of Delaware Library. This digital edition, newly edited by Prof. Gates, integrates the 1991 edition with transcriptions of the manuscript material.


Images of manuscript pages are provided courtesy of the Special Collections Department at the Morris Library, University of Delaware. Special Collections also graciously permitted access to the manuscript volumes, which were transcribed by Tara Stern Moore and James Webner. The original copy of the 1891 edition was loaned by the Musselman Library, Gettysburg College. The map of Exeter listed in the contents page was provided by the Westcountry Studies Library, Exeter.
