Alice James (1848-1892) was the sister of Henry and William James, as literary as her more famous brothers, but as was typical for a Victorian woman, never formally educated and thus deprived of any opportunity for a normal "career." In her introductory biographical essay, Professor Ruth Bernard Yeazell of Yale University argues that Alice James instead made a career of her lifelong neurasthenic illness and anticipation of death. In this selection of letters, many written from the invalids bed, one finds Alice James witty and lyrical, but always deeply morbid: an artist of the deathbed, reminiscent of Kafkas fictional Hunger Artist. Susan Sontag was inspired by this book to write her play, Alice in Bed. And critic Elaine Showalter has said that The Death and Letters of Alice James is, "A book everyone interested in womens history and literature will want."

Diary of an emigrant, identified only as James, who sailed with his wife from Plymouth to Sydney in 1883 (Sept. 27th-Dec. 14th). His journey aboard the ship Pericles took 81 days, and his narrative includes frequent references to prevailing weather conditions and shipboard life. Appointed the constable to look after single women, James participated in many religious services aboard ship. His journal also refers to the health of passengers, discipline, food eaten and homesickness. There is frequent mention of a person named Jennie, possibly his child, who remained in England. Each daily entry notes the distance travelled by ship in miles. The final page of the transcript is a letter, dated Jan. 3 1884, written from Alexandria, Sydney, to his relatives at home
