Emma Rauschenbusch-Clough’s impressively researched study of Wollstonecraft’s work originated as a PhD thesis at the University of Bern, in Switzerland. Little is known of her, beyond the fact that she was the daughter of Professor A. Rauschenbusch, D.D., to whom her only other book, While Sewing Sandals, or Tales of a Telegu Pariah Tribe (1899), was dedicated. Her preface to that work indicated that she had accompanied her husband, Rev. J. E. Clough D.D., on missionary work in India, and the title page stated that she was a member of the Royal Asiatic Society of Great Britain and Ireland.
