What does authors mean?

Authors
Authors or, The Game of Authors is a card game for three to five players. The first Game of Authors was published by G. M. Whipple & A. A. Smith of Salem, Massachusetts in 1861, and later published by Parker Brothers in 1897. The deck of cards consists of eleven sets of four cards each representing the works of eleven famous authors. The object of the game is to form complete sets of the four cards comprising the works of a particular author. The winner is the player with the most sets. The game is the creation of Anne Abbott, a Beverly, Massachusetts clergyman's daughter and editor of a young people's literary journal. Abbott also designed the hugely popular mid-19th century card game, Dr. Busby. Later decks included additional authors, but the authors represented in the original deck were: ⁕Louisa May Alcott ⁕James Fenimore Cooper ⁕Charles Dickens ⁕Nathaniel Hawthorne ⁕Washington Irving ⁕Henry Wadsworth Longfellow ⁕Sir Walter Scott ⁕William Shakespeare ⁕Robert Louis Stevenson ⁕Alfred, Lord Tennyson ⁕Mark Twain
