{{subst:Quick infobox|Charlotte Palmer|||}} Charlotte Palmer (fl. 1780–1797), author, was engaged in the profession of teaching. In 1780 she published with Newbery a novel in five volumes, 'Female Stability; or the History of Miss Belville'. It is written in epistolary fashion. On the title-page the author is called the late Miss Palmer, yet in 1797 appeared 'Letters on Several Subjects from a Preceptress to her Pupils who have left School'. It was addressed chiefly to real characters. Among the subjects are dress, choice of books, and clandestine marriage. The book, which ends with a poem entitled 'Pelew', referring to Prince Lee-Boo, is a curious and instructive picture of the manners of the time (Welsh, Bookseller of Last Century, page 281). Miss Palmer's other works are: 1. 'Integrity and Content: an Allegory', 1792. 2. 'It is and it is not: a Novel', 2 vols. 1792. 3. 'A newly invented Copy-book', 1797.[DNB 1][DNB 2][1]
