The Indexer: The International Journal of Indexing

Coping with a title: the indexer and the British aristocracy

The Indexer: The International Journal of Indexing (1991), 17, (3), 155–160.

Abstract

The names of peers occur frequently in books, and of course in their indexes. The English peerage system is not straightforward; it is so easy to make errors in the treatment of the names of peers and knights and their ladies, causing confusion to readers, that an article warning of pitfalls seems worthwhile.1 It is sometimes necessary to do research on peers and their titles, and this article gives the necessary clues. Whilst the article is in part general, the particular problems of indexers are covered, such as the form of name, and the order of entries.
