Additionally, I have a few more pictures of Zelica, the Creole to share, and will have those up soon. I also want to hunt down which library holds the copy of Secret History that was used for a photograph in Elizabeth Maddock Dillion's fascinating essay "Caribbean Revolution and Print Publics: Leonora Sansay and 'The Secret History of the Haitian Revolution'". I will be emailing her within the next few days to find out where she got her image, because it is a copy of Secret History that I don't already have cataloged AND it has an inscription on the flyleaf ("Miss Leonora Sansay") in exactly the same handwriting as the microform copy of Laura held at University of Illinois at Chicago. Perhaps in finding this original edition of Secret History I will also find an original of Laura.
Speaking of Laura, the phenomenally helpful Nicole Joniec at the Library Company of Philadelphia has pointed me in the right direction to obtain photos of an original edition of Laura, so that is in the works. This is super exciting to me because the physical form of this text is currently unclear to me; in Michael Drexler's recent edition, Laura runs about 60 pages long, but the original printing of the book is closer to 180! This means that the book is either printed with huge type or is very small. Either way I can't wait to see what it looks like. I am also curious if it is bound as beautifully as her other works.
I will also be adding a "key" soon to help folks read the catalog entries for Sansay's work. Perhaps this is symptomatic of my own educational experiences, but there were several parts of a typical entry that I was unsure about. For example, if the catalog entry reads "Description: , 225 p. ; 19 cm." what does that  mean? Fortunately, Krystal Appiah, the distinguished new curator for the Library Company’s African Americana collection, was kind enough to answer my questions about these entries. Obviously, the folks over at the Library Company of Philadelphia are extraordinary. LCP is the best!!
