From A Compendium of Irish Biography, 1878
Dod, Charles Roger, journalist and writer, was born 8th May 1793, at Drumlease, County of Leitrim. He was educated for the Irish Bar, but developed a taste for literature, and settled in London as a journalist. He was specially noted as a ready writer, often preparing biographical sketches at three hours' notice. For twenty-three years the Times had the benefit of his services. He projected and established those invaluable compilations, the Parliamentary Companion, and the Peerage and Baronetage. Mr. Dod died 21st February 1855, aged 61.

Charlotte Milligan Fox, sister of the poet Alice Milligan, was a founding member of the Irish Folk Song Society and an indefatigable field collector of Irish traditional music. Her singularly important work on Irish haprers is here presented for the twenty-first century reader. This edition of Annals offers a much greater number of illustrations than were included in the original 1911 publication, a full biographical introduction, an extensive bibliography of the writings of Milligan Fox and an appendix discussing the variant texts of Arthur O’Neills Memoirs.
