13 editions published between 1913 and 1975 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Purporting to be the work of the late John Pickard Owen (with a memoir by his brother), this 1873 satire set out to defend Christianity, but was written so subtly, that many readers, critics, and religious alike failed to recognize it as satire at all. While the first edition was written under a pseudonym, Butler revealed his authorship in the second edition, claiming he adopted a pseudonym for Fair Haven so as not to be suspected of satire
