Contact the Library at personallibraries{at}gmail{dot}com to place holds on a book from the Maria Mitchell Personal Library.

The catalogue will be updated as books are acquired.

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).
