The Atlas of Ancient and Classical Geography
by Samuel Butler
Publisher: Richard Clay & Sons 1907
The present Atlas is the result of the successive labour of many hands. Its original author was Dr. Samuel Butler, sometime head-master of Shrewsbury school and afterwards Bishop of Lichfield and Coventry. He edited Aeschylus, and was in his way a famous geographer. The work was at a later date twice revised, and its maps were re-drawn, under the editorship of his son. It has now been again revised and enlarged to suit the special needs of this series.

The area we shall survey in 1000 B.C. and re-survey at intervals, contains Western Asia bounded eastwards by a line drawn from the Persian Gulf to the Caspian Sea. This area is marked off by seas on three sides and by desert on the fourth side.

Since it is the letters, yet more than the arms or the institutions of Athens, which have rendered her illustrious, it is my object to combine an elaborate view of her literature with a complete and impartial account of her political transactions.

The aim of 'Homer and His Age' is to prove that the Homeric Epics as wholes and apart from passages gravely suspected in antiquity present a perfectly harmonious picture of the entire life and civilization of one single age.

The work combines the convenience of the Manuals with the synchronistic method of instruction; as the geography, chronology, and biography of the countries and states of the ancient world are brought at once under the eye of the reader.
