At the Circulating Library Data Visualizations: Authorship


Number of Titles Published by Authors' Gender per Year

Note: Totals include all identified authors regardless of whether the original novel appeared anonymously or pseudonymously.


Authorship and Nationality

Note: The totals do double count some authors—for example, Benjamin L. Farjeon lived in both Australia and New Zealand. Lists of authors by nationality can be found on the Groups page.


Authorship and Occupation

Note: The totals do double count some authors—for example, Jerome K. Jerome worked as both an editor and a playwright. Lists of authors by occupation can be found on the Groups page.


Authorship and Family Relationships

Note: The totals do double count some authors—for example, Anthony Trollope was both the child of a novelist (Fanny Trollope), the parent of a novelist (Henry Merivale Trollope), and the sibling of a novelist (Thomas Adolphus Trollope). Lists of authors by family or family relationships can be found on the Groups page.
