BY S. G. GOODRICH,
FOR THE USE OF SCHOOLS AND FAMILIES.
A NEW EDITION,
PREFACE TO THE NEW EDITION. This work was originally published about fifteen years ago, since which time nearly 500,000 copies have been sold. The decided and continuous approbation indicated by these facts, has stimulated the author and publisher to bestow upon it a careful revision, with a view to meet the constantly improving taste of the public in respect to educational works.
In the present edition, the original form of the work has been pre crved, buit numerous additions have been made, either for the purpose f perfecting certain portions and passages, or in order to bring down the train of events to the present time. A large number of illustrative notes have been appended to the pages, and at the end of the work will be found the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, adopted during the Revolutionary period, and the Constitution of the United States, together with a full Index of proper names.
While, therefore, the original design of this work, which was to make it primarily a book for schools—interesting to the pupil and easy to be learned, yet leaving vivid and abiding impressions on the memory-has been kept steadily in view, it is believed that, as now presented, it will prove to be a convenient and useful manual for the family, and the general reader.
