An old person of Buda

While I was searching for the story of the yellow butterflies and then for more information on Mary Raymond Shipman Andrews (most of whose books are still in copyright, evidently), I found manybooks.net, a variation on the Project Gutenberg model. manybooks scans the covers of the volumes transcribed, which is a great service. Edward Lear wrote:
There was an Old Person of Buda,
Whose conduct grew ruder and ruder;
Till at last, with a hammer,
They silenced his clamour,
By smashing that Person of Buda
Manybooks.net offers that old tearjerker "Just David" (Eleanor Porter).
