Reference books hide their learning. The reader who opens The Oxford Chronology of English Literature to 1815 may read, inter alia, about "[John Galt (1779)]/F The Majolo / A Tale / FOR H. COLBURN / Anon. 'Introductory Address'dated Apr. 1815. / Repub. in 2 vols with additional text, 1816" (1:354; "F" stands for "fiction"). Nothing about such an entry surprises or perhaps even seems of interest.
