Agnes Giberne

Standard Name: Giberne, Agnes
Birth Name: Agnes Giberne
Pseudonym: A. G.
Pseudonym: Aunt Agnes
Pseudonym: The Author of Willie and Lucy at the Sea-side
In a publishing career that spanned nearly forty years of the nineteenth century and a couple of decades of the twentieth, AG issued more than 108 books. Her bibliography is still not properly elucidated, since most of her books appeared undated; many went through several editions; and so many copies were read to pieces that some editions or reprints have left no examples surviving. They include tales and stories for young adults, historical fiction, pioneering popular science books, scholarship, an important biography, and religious writing.
