PRE FACE.

DURING many years we sought in vain for an historical work which would be equally adapted to all classes of students from the child to the more advanced scholar. We did not wish for a compilation of extracts; “for what do these books generally contain ? Nothing but trifling passages in prose and verse, scraped together from every quarter, without any taste in the selection, or useful information in the matter. And even should the extracts be good, we maintain that a language cannot be learned so well by small extracts from different authors, as by studying carefully some one book, which shall interest and instruct the pupil by the matter it contains, as well as by its style and general character.
