FLORENCE, S.C. – Emily Lorraine de Montluzin, a professor of history at Francis Marion University, has published her fifth book on the English periodical press.
Attributions of Authorship in the “European Magazine,” 1782-1826, has just been published by the Bibliographical Society of the University of Virginia and is accessible electronically at the society’s web site: http://etext.lib.virginia.edu/bsuva/. The reference work is a comprehensive electronic database of identifications of the authors of anonymous and pseudonymous contributions to the European Magazine, an important English periodical whose 89 volumes cover major developments in English and European history during the late 18th and early 19th centuries.
Attributions of Authorship in the “European Magazine,” 1782-1826, is designed to make available in one electronically searchable and fully browsable list all known attributions of authorship of anonymous, pseudonymous, or incompletely attributed articles, letters, reviews, and poems appearing in the European Magazine over its 44-year history. Encompassing 2,074 items from 160 contributors, the database (approximately 140 pages of browsable text) is searchable electronically by volume number, page number, date, title, author, pseudonym, and key word. All attributions are cross-referenced, appearing first in a chronological listing and then in a synopsis by contributor, so that users may easily examine each attribution of authorship in its chronological context.
De Montluzin, who has taught at FMU since 1974, is a specialist in 18th- and early 19th-century British press history. She received her Ph.D. and M.A. history degrees from Duke University, and her bachelor’s degree from Newcomb College of Tulane University.
