The card game Authors originated in Salem, Massachusetts in 1861, first published by G. M. Whipple and A.A. Smith. Parker Brothers published a version in 1897. The simple matching type game encourages players to learn which author wrote specific titles. The player with the most matched sets of titles by each author at the end of the game wins. Authors was a perennial family favorite game from its beginning and versions are still produced today. Over the years the game has broadened to include women authors, composers, explorers, inventors, and sports figures.

Another version of the game Authors by McLoughlin Brothers, this card game is McLoughlin's more difficult version. Instead of matching Authors with their book titles, players must match authors with their quotations. Instead of a cardboard box, this example is wood, with printed paper coverings. This demonstrates the high quality of certain games by McLoughlin Brothers at this time.
