Redcross Biography
Overview: Biography Records

Before 1760 author biographies are limited to a few works of standard reference and the occasional preface or obituary notice; after 1760 they proliferated rapidly as lives of living writers began to be recorded and collected in newspapers, magazines, and biographical dictionaries. For this and other reasons cross-author numerical comparisons are not usually relevant.
