The word auctorial means “of or relating to an author”
Background / Comments
This word has an interesting background… in ancient Rome, auctioneers, grantors, and vendors were called auctors, from the Latin augēre (to promote” or “to increase”). After passing through Anglo-French and Middle English is came to mean “author”. The word authorial is much more common, but our word may be occasionally found.
The word came into use in the early 1800s.
