Excerpt from Tabular Views of Universal History: A Series of Chronological Tables Presenting, in Parallel Columns, a Record of the More Noteworthy Events in the History of the World From the Earliest Times Down to 1890

This chronology of historical events, originally compiled by the late George P. Putnam and forminga part of his comprehensive cyclopedia on The World's Progress, has been carefully revised and brought down to the present time, and it is now issued in a separate form in the trust that every one who needs at his elbow a convenient manual of dates may find his requirements satisfied in this volume. To teachers especially it is hoped that it may prove an important aid in imparting instruction. They more than all others ap preciate the difficulty of permanently fixing in the mind the exact time of great occurrences, and they should accordingly value any means of lessening that difficulty. Such a means, it is thought, is found in the arrangement here adopted of placing in parallel columns on facing pages the events occurring throughout the world at about the same period of time. This calls in the powerful assistance of association in enabling the memory to grasp and retain a hold of important dates by showing at a glance simultaneous occurrences in other countries. It also helps in teaching the lesson that the history of any one nation is only a part of the history of the world and that the proper way to study true history is to follow the progress of the people scattered over the face of the globe, and not of a fragmentary few gathered into one corner of it.
