APPENDIX

REPRESENTATIVE ARTICLES ON AMERICAN LITERATURE
APPEARING IN BRITISH PERIODICALS 1833 TO 1901

THE PRESENT LIST, compiled almost entirely from the holdings of the Library of Congress, is intended to illustrate the popularity of various American authors among the critics who wrote for the magazines published in the British Isles during the period indicated. Book reviews of the ordinary type, obituary notices, and discussions of international copyright are not included. Nor are the legions of "American Letters," "Notes from America," and so on unless such a department consists of an entire essay. For examples of British critical articles published prior to 1833 the reader is referred to the two studies made by the late William B. Cairns.

All articles dealing at some length with two or more authors and classified under the heading General are indexed also under the names of the individual authors except where their titles are sufficiently revelatory. For example, an article under General which is entitled "American Essayists" is not cross-indexed under Irving, but one entitled "Three Prominent American Authors" is referred to again under Irving if he happens to be one of the authors discussed at some length.

Under each heading the arrangement is chronological.
