Index of Maria Abdy's Contributions
to British Literary Annuals

This index was compiled from my research, Andrew Boyle's An Index to the Annuals 1820-1850 and Frederick Faxon's Literary Annuals and Gift Books: A Bibliography 1823-1903. To view prose or poetry pieces, click on the Title.

The author's biographical identification is from Boyle's index (not my own).  Understandably, these identifications are somewhat dated and most likely unappreciative of the entire biographical data of the individual.
