The paper proposes a series of stylometric analyses aimed at attributing the erotic novel Josefine Mutzenbacher (1906) to one of its possible authors: Felix Salten, Arthur Schnitzler, Hermann Bahr, Peter Altenberg, Hugo von Hofmannsthal, Ernst Klein, and Willi Handl. After reviewing the discussion among literary scholars, two analyses have been performed: one that combines 480 different methods to compare the seven candidate authors; one that verifies the attribution using the “impostors” method. Results show how the most probable author is Felix Salten, more commonly known for his children’s book Bambi.
