Books and authors that need more research and may be a part of her library are:
Louisa May Alcott, George Sand, Herman Melville's Redburn, attended a public reading by Dickens of The Cricket on the Heath, Frederick Douglass, Sojourner Truth, Summer on the Lakes by Margaret Fuller, James Freeman Clarke (biographer of Margaret Fuller), Matthew Arnold, Loomis' The Recent Progress of Astronomy

Please check back on this list, as it will be added to when new books from her personal library come to light. It will also be amended when books are purchased for the Personal Libraries Library.

This list was compiled with the help of The Maria Mitchell Association of Nantucket; most notably by the incredibly helpful curator of Special Collections at the Association, Jascin Finger. Other books were gleaned by reading Maria Mitchell and the Sexing of Science by Renee Bergland (Beacon Press, Boston) and Maria Mitchell: Life, Letters, and Journals compiled by Phebe Mitchell Kendall (BiblioBazaar).
