A Gallery of Master Historians

Excerpt from A Gallery of Master Historians In submitting this small contribution to the art of Historiography to students or general readers, I hope that its interest will be strong enough to stir in them a desire to go straight to the Masters and read the creations of their genius. Indeed, if this hope is not realised, this book serves no useful purpose, and in vain have I dared to borrow a few of the gems in the treasury of historical art and literature. May I take this opportunity of thanking Dr. Richard Wilson for valuable suggestions and help; also M. Paul Thiriet, Strasburg University, for his generous assistance concerning Michelet and Ferraro; while in regard to Prescott and Motley, the studious zeal of Mr. F. C. Jones, Bristol University, gave me considerable aid and confidence. For the use of copyright material acknowledgments are due and are hereby gratefully tendered to: - Messrs. Macmillan and Co. for two extracts from Lord Acton's works; The Clarendon Press for two extracts from Hodgkin's Italy and her Invaders; Messrs. Longmans Green for two extracts from Creighton's History of the Papacy, and two extracts from Froude's History of England; and Messrs. W. Heinemann for two extracts from Ferraro's Greatness and Decline of Rome. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
