PREFACE.



THIS work i^ designed as a Dictionary of American and Eng-
lish Initials and Pseudonyms employed from the beginning of
the 18 th century to the present time ; to which have been added
some of the more recent and important Continental ones, and a



to. few false-names, which, by a strict definition of words, would be



ture^Q'lled sobriquets,

y^?'^! A similar work by Mr. Albert R. Frey, of the Astor Library,
**^ew York City, was placed by the publishers at the writer's
disposal, from which about two thousand titles were taken, and
added to his own compilation, making an aggregate of twelve
thousand initials and pseudonyms, and eight thousand real names
of authors.

Attention is called to the very complete article, by Mr. Frey,
on " Junius," to be found in the first part.

For the convenience of those using this dictionary, it may
be well to state that the first part gives the initials and pseu-
donyms, followed by the real names, of the authors, together with
some representative literary performance ; and the method used in
indexing, with some exceptions, is to treat the literary disguises
as real names, and arrange them as is customary with the latter,
i.e., the last member of the initial or pseudonym is put first, and
determines the alphabetical order. The second part contains the
real names of authors, followed by the initials and pseudonyms,
and short biographical notices.

The writer has endeavored to make this work both compre-
hensive and correct, and, in order to do this, has availed him-
self of the Harvard University Library, and every other source

of information to which the kindness of those interested in the

undertaking has given him access, and believes he has been )

enabled to produce a volume that will be useful to librarians
and of interest to the general reader. (

Notification of errors or omissions, or any information that would \

add to the value of the work, will be gladly received by the
undersigned.
