- adapted from the Dictionary of National Biography and Richard Holmes, Coleridge: Early Visions (1989)

John Prior Estlin (1747-1817) was a unitarian minister and friend of Barbauld and Coleridge. It was at Estlin's home that Coleridge met Barbauld in August 1797. Barbauld's friendship with Estlin and his wife Susanna was long established and only ended with his death. He entered the Warrington Academy in 1764 and became acquainted with Barbauld when he was taught divinity by her father, Dr. Aikin.

Introduction to this Hypertext


The hypertext edition of Poems (1773) by Anna Lætitia Aikin (later Barbauld) reproduces a copy courtesy of the Bruce Peel Special Collections Library, University of Alberta in Edmonton. It presents a faithful color facsimile of the first edition and text versions of the poems. While scholars wishing to consult the first edition may access the text, the facsimile also provides a means to introduce students to material aspects of book production and is intended to make the physical book have a reality and a bearing upon the experience of reading the poems. The edition is part of an ongoing collaborative venture on the part of an academic who is interested in late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century British women writers, and a graduate student with much experience in Web design.
