Excerpt from A Descriptive Catalogue of Historical Novels and Tales: For the Use of School Libraries and Teachers of History

MY object, in drawing up the following list of Historical Novels, has been two-fold. In the first place, I hope that it may serve as a useful catalogue for those who have the charge of School Libraries. In the second place, I have tried to provide what seems to me a valuable aid to the School Teacher of History. I am sure - I speak from experience - that he or She will find the History-work of the school considerably freshened and enlivened, if, when treating any period, care be taken that the pupils shall know what are the best novels which relate to that period, and be encouraged to read them. The little harm which the fancy and invention of the writer may do will be amply compensated for by the ektra brightness of interest which is sure to be gained. Moreover, to paraphrase the words of Jean Paul, it is not the intention of so Sportive an instruction as this to absolve the pupil from the necessity for real exertion; but rather it is hoped that thereby a passion may be awakened in him, which shall not only facilitate, but Shall even necessitate, the strongest exertion on his part.

It has not been always easy to decide whether a book shall be admitted as an Historical Novel or not. There is an immense variety of tales and romances, ranging from mere sketches of domestic life at certain periods, such as Miss Austen's works.
