PREFACE.

This book has been compiled to meet a demand
for a handy reference guide to the writings of
American authors. So far as the author knows,
there is no other work along similar lines, and it
was through the need of such a book that its com-
pilation was suggested.

As a wide range of entries in a limited space natu-
rally implies brevity, the author has endeavored to
recognize the fact by giving such items only as, in
his judgment, are deemed necessary.

The aim throughout has been to make for the
general reader a brief but comprehensive guide to
the authorship of the various writings in the great
body of American literature.

Valuable assistance in the compilation of the
book has been derived from the following standard
works of reference: AUibone's "Critical Dictionary
of English Literature and British and American
Authors," Appleton's " Cyclopedia of American Biog-
