In 1788, 32 years after her death, Eliza Haywood's The History of Miss Leonora Meadowson was published. The book was reviewed in The Critical Review, and again (briefly) in another magazine: and then it disappeared. Since 1788, the Critical Review has been the sole source for criticism, and the only evidence available that this last ('lost') work of Haywood's ever existed. Why Leonora Meadowson was published so long after Haywood's death, and what its 'history' may have been, has remained a mystery — until now.
