The Nuttall Encyclopaedia is an early-20th-century encyclopaedia, edited by Rev. James Wood, first published in London in 1900 by Frederick Warne & Co Ltd. It is named for Dr. Peter Austin Nuttall (d. 1869), whose works, such as Standard Pronouncing Dictionary of the English Language (published in 1863), were eventually acquired by Frederick Warne, and would be published for decades to come. The encyclopaedia has a strong editorial voice, and concerns itself mostly with people and places. It may be the only printed encyclopaedia that has entries for fictional characters from Charles Dickens' books, but at the same time lacks entries for fruit. Entries generally are very short. It often reflects the personal bias of the author, and of course views events from its own perspective in time; both aspects can be seen in entries like Dates of Epoch-Making Events.
