Meet our Authors: John Anthony Butler – April 2019

John Anthony Butler holds an MA from the University of Toronto and a PhD from the University of Manitoba, Canada. He has taught at the university level in Canada, Nigeria and Japan, and has published several books on seventeenth-century subjects, including a biography of Richard Cromwell and a translation of Lord Herbert of Chirbury’s De religione gentilium, as well as editions of Sir Thomas Herbert’s Travels and Sir Paul Rycaut’s Present State of the Ottoman Empire.

His latest book is an edition of John Greaves’s Pyramidographia (2018), and he has also published a book of essays on little-known travel-writers, Off the Beaten Track (2017).

Under Cambridge Scholars Publishing, John has authored Sir Jerome Horsey’s Travels and Adventures.

John described his experience with Cambridge Scholars Publishing as wholly positive, chiefly praising the pleasant nature of our staff, the speed and quality of the publishing process as well as recommending us to other scholars.

“I am a retired Professor of English currently living in Canada, who has taught at universities in Canada, Nigeria and Japan. My areas are Early Modern Travel Literature, Asian Studies and the Intellectual History of the Seventeenth Century. Cambridge Scholars Publishing provided me with a chance to publish books which were out of the mainstream academic category, which for me is their greatest asset. They are most definitely not a vanity press, and the courtesy as well as the professionalism of their staff was very much appreciated during the publishing process, which was easy, pleasant and efficient, making the whole experience with them a positive one. They are able to produce an excellent-quality product within a short time (under six months), which should also be a recommendation for authors who need to get into print quickly in order to have material on their CVs. All in all, the experience has been very rewarding, and I would certainly suggest that young scholars give CSP serious consideration.”
