Abstract
We report the discovery of 14 double-star systems with main-sequence primar ies, most of which are M type. Infrared imaging indicates that the secondar ies are most likely late-type dwarfs. The fact that most of the stars are w ithin 25 pc underscores the incompleteness of our present census of our nea rest neighbors.
