A hill is classified as a Wainwright if it is one of the 214 Lake District fells described in Alfred Wainwright's seven volume A Pictorial Guide to the Lakeland Fells and a Wainwright Outlying Fell if it is one of the 116 described in his companion volume The Outlying Fells of Lakeland.
These books, which were first published in the fifties and sixties, have since been revised and for walkers we now recommend the third editions which have been revised by Clive Hutchby to reflect changes in the fells since. The exception, currently, is The Outlying Fells of Lakeland which is still in its earlier second edition by Chris Jesty.

By the way for the collector the original, first edition, versions of the Wainwright books are still in print, either as a boxed set or individual volumes.
