Reading References For English History

By HENRY LEWIN CANNON Leland Stanford University

REVISED AND ENLARGED By ALICE STOPFORD GREEN

This volume provides exact references to about two thousand of the most accessible and useful works on English History. The material comprises

A classified bibliography of all books.

Topics and references, chronologically arranged and covering the whole field of English history. Each division contains a summary of sub-topics, references to modern works suitable for high school students, and to modern works of a more advanced character.

The London Times says of this new edition : “ The keenest-eyed literary critic would find it difficult to determine from internal evidence where J. R. Green laid down the pen and Mrs. Green took it up. There is the same picturesque style, the same gift of epigrammatic expression and faculty for seizing the essential detail, the same broad outlook on human affairs. There is no important aspect of history since the battle of Waterloo upon which Mrs. Green has not touched with a deft and sympathetic hand. ...

“Altogether it is difficult to see how the history of the last century could have been better written."

“We have decided to put it into students' hands for the freshman year. Its especially strong feature is that the student can use it, and its regular use can be required.(Italics are Mr. Hidley's.) REBECCA P. ELLIOTT, William Penn High School for Girls, Philadelphia :

“I have found the chapter on The European War very valuable, as giving, in a concise form, the essential points of the controversy."

Fite's History of the United States

12mo. 110 illustrations. 44 maps, $1.60 AMERICAN HISTORICAL REVIEW:

“ The first impression which this book makes upon the reader is that it is unusually good. A critical examination convinces him that the first impression was correct, and that another first-class textbook has been made available for use in secondary schools” MISSISSIPPI VALLEY HISTORICAL REVIEW:

“The book is singularly free from errors. The style is quite readable, and is written distinctly for the high school. This book will take rank among the best of the recent texts.''
