Cambridge Pieces: Easyread Super Large 24pt Edition
This collection of essays takes us to the time Butler spent at Cambridge. He describes his memorable trip to Europe and literary activities including translation of some Greek works. Experiences of his life and some articles that were published in Eagle and Cambridge Magazines are also included. The scholarly writing style of the author makes the reader yearn for more of the Victorian Litterateur.
