Scot,
It seems to me (whatever the eventual decision is concerning the authorship of the introduction) that Butcher and Lang should be identified in the BookNotes as having written a translators' Preface for 167.1.  (Do the BookNotes routinely identify Preface authorship?)

Bill has answered the question sufficiently in my view.

Please excuse typos, this was sent using clumsy fingers and small buttons.

Scot,
My reading of the last paragraph of the Butcher and Lang Preface (prior to the Preface to the Third Edition) on page ix leads me to conclude that the introduction was written by Butcher and Lang largely for clarifcation of contested issues of their translation.
 
What do other ML collectors conclude upon reading this preface?

Folks,
V. Civiletti points to the ModernLib BookNotes for Homer's Odyssey:
1929 - 1951 (no intro) 167.1
951 - 1960 (Highet intro) 167.2
960 - 1970 (Rees intro) 167.3
He reports that 167.1 does INDEED have a longish intro, but it's unsigned. 
So who wrote the intro to the first edition (167.1, 1929)?
