Here is the first complete modern edition of THE FEMALE MARINE, a fictional cross-dressing trilogy originally published between 1815 and 1818. The alternately racy and moralistic narrative recounts the adventures of a young woman who serves as a man on the CONSTITUTION during the War of 1812. Daniel Cohen's Introduction situates the story in its literary and historical contexts. Illustrated.
