Excerpt from Introduction to the Study of History: Civil, Ecclesiastical, and Literary

HE links between the most remote past and the present are comparatively few. They are to be found in the histories of the israelites, the greeks, the romans, and in that of one's own country, be it England, or France, or Germany. The israelitish history (that of the Bible) introduces us to that of babylon, assia, egypt, and persia. Greek history brings us to the very beginning of European civilisation, and of free democratical govern ments. Roman history is the history of struggles for a mixed free constitutional government, with encouraging success, which failed only through the wars of conquest that led to the necessary esta blishment of the Empire. The history of our own country, or that of France or Germany, is more or less connected with that of the civilised world. In the excellent Students' Manuals published by Murray there is a complete historical library compiled by writers of eminence, and well adapted for the present use or future reference of the reader, as introductory to the study of our great historians.
