On the attribution of periodicals and newspapers to Daniel Defoe

Furbank, P. N. and Owens, W. R. (1996). On the attribution of periodicals and newspapers to Daniel Defoe. Publishing History, 40 pp. 83–98.

Abstract

A study of some twenty-seven periodicals and newspapers listed by J.R. Moore in his Checklist of Defoe's Writings as ones to which Defoe contributed. Argues that in the case of seventeen of these periodicals there is no solid evidence that Defoe ever wrote for them, and that they should therefore not be included in the canon of his writings.
