Eyre Evans Crowe (1799 - 1868) was an historian and English journalist. Educated at Trinity College, Dublin, his work appeared in Blackwood's Magazine and he had several novels published. As a journalist he was a leading contributor to the Daily News and Examiner with a specialty in continental history and foreign politics. Ferdinand Meath McVeagh (1789 - 1888), born in Ireland, was himself an author of such varied subjects as political satires, poetry, and Irish fiction. He was a collector of fine books and some of his bookplates have been referenced in various auction catalogues such as Christie's.
