I’d like to read Letters Written in Sweden, Norway, and Denmark which is a combination of travel journal and philosophical musing by Mary Wollstonecraft. A surprisingly detailed wikipedia page is at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Letters_Written_in_Sweden,_Norway,_and_Denmark.

Is this something that SE would want in the corpus? If so I’ll produce it.

Sure, you can work on that.

This was a fairly quick build and proofread at 51k words (I’d forgotten what it was like!). Repo: https://github.com/robinwhittleton/mary-wollstonecraft_letters-written-during-a-short-residence-in-sweden-norway-and-denmark. Production notes:


A sad little book but an interesting one. Worth reading for sure. So ready to review.
