General History

This book is accepted and recommended by all the leading colleges and universities in the United States as the best brief course in general history. The style is interesting, historical perspective is accurately shown, facts are well arranged, the book is adequately illustrated and generously supplied with maps and other aids.

Myers' Ancient History (Revised Edition)

A COMPREHENSIVE revision of the most widely used text-book on the subject. In it will be embodied all the essential suggestions and recommendations contained in the Report of the Committee of Seven of the American Historical Association, and it will meet fully the entrance requirements of the best colleges. (Ready this spring.)

The Middle Ages The Modern Age

In these two new books, which are largely based on the author's “ Outlines of Mediæval and Modern History,” the general perspective of the original ork has not been essentially modified; but the emphasis in places has been shifted, the narrative of events brought down to the present time, and new material inserted. The series of maps has been augmented by the addition of new and valuable charts, and each chapter has been supplemented by lists of books for reference and collateral reading.

Rome, Its Rise and Fall

In this edition of his “Rome: Its Rise and Fall,” Professor Myers has supplemented his own remarkable range of knowledge in the historical field by the special attainments of the most advanced modern investigators of the periods covered by the present book. He has been particularly fortunate in securing the coöperation of several of the most distinguished American and European scholars. From the point of view of modern scholarship, few books in the field of history are so well prepared as Myers' “ Rome" to invite the closest scrutiny of educators.

History of Greece

This is generally recognized as the most scholarly and most practical school history of Greece. The book is well illustrated, contains many colored maps, and has bibliographies at the close of each chapter. It is interesting in style and emphasizes the permanent elements of Greek history.

HISTORY OF WESTERN EUROPE

By JAMES HARVEY ROBINSON
Professor of History in Columbia University

714 PAGES. WITH MAPS AND ILLUSTRATIONS.

The excellence of Robinson's “ History of Western Europe" has been attested by the immediate and widespread adoption of the book in many of the best schools and colleges of the country. It is an epoch-making text-book on the subject, in that it solves in an entirely

satisfactory manner the problem of proportion.

dress of the volume. W. G. BEACH, Associate Professor of

I have no hesitation in definiteness, and

recommending Robinson's interest

Western Europe in the

highest terms, as the best book of its kind yet published. The pronounced change in selection and arrangement of material, as compared with other books of the same class, is a vast improvement. What is lost in inevitable omission is far more than compensated for by the gain in simplicity, definiteness, and interest. The careful avoidance of the encyclopedic form so often followed is a great advantage, and results in a really useful text for teaching purposes. CHARLES A. HAZEN, Professor of His.

There is no doubt that

Robinson's work

History of

Western Europe is epoch-making work in the treatment of European history. There is no other history in the same compass to which we can turn to-day for such an admirable, scholarly, and at the same time simple presentation of such topics as Feudalism, the Mediæval Church, the Protestant Revolt, and the eve of the French Revolution. Were the pupil to leave his historical studies with a

clear idea of each of these subjects, - and this book certainly gives the opportunity for its attainment, - the teacher of history would not have taught in vain. S. C. MITCHELL, Professor of History,

Richmond College, Richmond, Va. A fresh,

It is a fresh, interesting, interesting, and

and helpful treatment of

the Middle Ages, a book helpful treatment

that will be welcomed by all teachers of that subject. I have read it with chained attention. Its suggestive biographical material, its illustrations and well-balanced interpretations, its hints of the derivation of important terms in present usage, and its excellent maps and pictures make it a most attractive text-book. I like the author's wish to see things whole, to get at the good in such matters as mediæval papacy and monasticism, and to look at all tendencies from the inside. H. G. PLUM, Professor of European His.

Robinson's History is, its sympathetic

valuable addition to the spirit

teaching facilities for the period which it covers. Professor Robinson has been most successful in keeping out unessentials, and also the hitherto considered "important events," which have obscured the main course of the development of civilization in our textbooks. To my mind, however, the greatest charm which the book possesses is the perfectly sympathetic spirit with which the author has undertaken each topic of the entire period. H. P.

As an elementary book for students of high-school grade it is admirable.
