Freeman (Edward A.)-OLD - ENGLISH HISTORY.

By EDWARD A. FREEMAN, D.C.L., late Fellow of Trinity
College, Oxford. With Five Coloured Maps. Fourth Edition.

Extra fcap. 8vo. half-bound. 6s. I have, I hope,the author says, shown that it is perfectly easy to teach children, from the very first, to distinguish true history alike from legend and from wilful invention, and also to understand the nature of historical authorities and to weigh one statement against another. I have throughout striven to connect the history of England with the general history of civilized Europe, and I have especially tried to make the book serve as an incentive to a more accurate study of historical geography.In the present edition the whole has been carefully revised,

[ocr errors]

and such improvements as suggested themselves have been introduced. The book indeed is full of instruction and interest to students of all ages, and he must be a well-informed man indeed who will not rise from its perusal with clearer and more accurate ideas of a too much neglected portion of English History."--SPECTATOR. Historical Course for Schools.-Edited by EDWARD

A. FREEMAN, D.C.L., late Fellow of Trinity College, Oxford. The object of the present series is to put forth clear and correct views

of history in simple language, and in the smallest space and cheapest form in which it could be done. It is meant in the first place for Schools; but it is often found that a book for schools proves useful for other readers as well, and it is hoped that this may be the case with the little books the first instalment of which is now given to the world. The General Sketch will be followed by a series of special histories of particular countries, which will take for granted the main principles laid down in the General Sketch. In every case the results of the latest historical research will be given in as simple a form as may be, and the several numbers of the series will all be so far under the supervision of the Editor as to secure general accuracy of statement and a general harmony of plan and sentiment; but each book will be the original work of its author, who will

be responsible for his own treatment of smaller details. 1. GENERAL SKETCH OF EUROPEAN HISTORY. Ву

" There can be no doubt that it will be found excellently calculated to further instruction in Biblical literature in any school into which it may be introduced ; and we can safely say that whatever school uses the book, it will enable its pupils to understand Isaiah, a great advantage compared with other establishments which do not avail themselves of it.—TIMES.
