During the 19th century, Godey's Lady's Book
was a very popular United States magazine
among women. The magazine was produced for 68 years (1830
), and each issue contained poetry, articles, and engravings created by prominent writers and artists of the time. Sarah Hale
was its editor from 1837
and only published original, American manuscripts. In addition, she copyrighted the magazine. Although the magazine contained work by both males and females, Hale published three special issues which only included work done by women.
