PREFACE.

THIS
HIS volume is composed of selections taken

chiefly from Curtius and Rawlinson, and arranged in such a manner as to bring in events of the first importance.

All other facts, even though important, have been omitted, on the principle that a mere compilation of names and dates is not only unattractive, but also highly injurious, to the beginner.

The matter contained in the book is amply sufficient to prepare one in Greek history for any of our colleges. At the same time the preparatory student should remember that the true place to learn the history of the Greeks and Romans is in their writings.

I wish here to express my obligation to Dr. D. F. WELLS for his kind and gentlemanly assistance in preparing the map and plans given in the history.

R. F. PENNELL. EXETER, N.H., June 20, 1874.
