1.0 out of 5 stars Not the real Butler's , not even an abridgement, October 9, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Lives of the Saints (Kindle Edition)
This is not Butler's "Lives Of The Saints". It is "Lives Of The Saints With Reflections For Every Day In The Year Compiled From The 'Lives Of The Saints' By Rev. Alban Butler'. It is not an edition of Butler's. Even to call it an "abridgement" would really be pushing it, but if it had been marketed as such, I would have avoided it in the first place and not have wasted my time purchasing it and then obtaining a refund.

Thank you for blowing the whistle on a deceptively titled book. You saved me from buying this.

I was about to 1-click because of the good kindle price but I am glad I scrolled down and saw your review. Thank you!

Agreed, thank you for the info. Do you recommend a particular version of the real "Lives of the Saints"? Year published? I appreciate it.

I am looking for a PRE-VATICAN II copy of Lives of the Saints... I can't thank you enough for keeping me from purchasing this counterfeit. I guess I'll have to keep searching because I do NOT want to follow any calendar of saint feast days that have been jumbled and bumbled about hither and yon ever since the chaos that came out of VCII. Again, thanks.

I'm glad my comment was of some use! It's good to know what you're getting or not getting before laying money down. Unfortunately I don't have an alternative to suggest for a Butler's edition but Catholic Encyclopedia online at New Advent is very good although not as detailed or comprehensive as obviously it's a general encyclopedia.
