    Historical as in set in the past, or those that were written in the past?

    As for the former: all Sarah Waters books, Under The Mink by Lisa E. Davis, Stone Butch Blues by Leslie Feinberg, Patience and Sarah by Isabel Miller, various novels by Penny Hayes, and this list:

    As for the latter: The Well Of Loneliness (among others) by Radclyffe Hall, Rubyfruit Jungle, lesbian pulp novels (written by a variety of authors, and often under pseudonyms), the poetry of Sappho, and this list:

    Hope that helps!

    Not sure about "historical," but The Price of Salt is a pretty good read.
