Lost poetry of Frances Ellen Watkins Harper discovered

Congratulations to Johanna Ortner, Ph.D. candidate at UMass-Amherst, for rediscovering the first collection of poetry of the 19th-century activist Frances Ellen Watkins Harper. (By the way, Johanna, I think it's acceptable to scream when making a find of this magnitude.)
