Alphabetical

Is there a word that means an alphabetical list by first letter only?. So, for example, all words beginning with A precede all words begining with B and so on in the normal alphabetical way. But within the whole list, that part beginning with B the word Brown may well precede the word Beige, but the word Blue may precede them both. Or in other words all the B words might be random within the B grouping before moving on to the C part.

    I would say

    alphabetical by initial
    or
    alphabetical by initial letter
