Samuel Butler was an English classical scholar and schoolmaster. He is not to be confused with his better-known grandson of the same name, author of the novel Erewhon. This text is signed at rear by G. Perry McClintock of Seskanore House, Co. Tyrone. Online photos of the house suggest this book may once have formed part of the fine library in a gentleman's country seat.
