Excerpt from The Eighteen Christian Centuries

If we could affix to each century as characteristic 3. Presentment as those portraits do of the steel-clad hero Of Towton, or the be-wigged, be-buckled courtier Of George the Second, our Object would be gained. We should see a whole history in a glance at a century's face. If it were peculiarly marked by nature or accident, so much the more easy would it be to recognise the like ness. If the century was a warlike, quarrelsome century, and had scars across its brow; if it was a learned, plod ding century, and wore spectacles On nose; if it was a frivolous, gay century, and simpered forever behind bouquets Of ?owers, or tripped on fantastic toe with a jewelled rapier at its side, there would be no mistaking the resemblance; there would also be no chance Of con fusing the actions: the legal century would not fight, the dancing century would not, depose its king.
