Excerpt from A New History of Rome, From the Earliest Times to the Fall of the Western Empire

It may perhaps seem unnecessary to add another History of Rome to those now in use; but, so far as the author is aware, none has appeared since the writings of the greatest living historian of Rome have opened new and important fields of thought to the student. Much light has also been thrown by modern comparative philology on the origin and primitive history of the Latin race.

The present work is based in the main upon the 'Romische Geschichte' of Theodor Mommsen, and its chief aim is to bring the latest results of German research and criticism within the reach of English schools. The writer was not aware, until the work had made some progress, that a translation in extenso of Professor Mommsen's History, by Professor Dickson of Glasgow University, was being issued, which has since been completed; but it is evident that the two works are addressed to different classes of readers.

This History is intended for the use of higher forms in schools, and candidates for appointments in the Civil Service; but it is hoped that it may not prove devoid of interest to the general reader. The writer has endeavoured not merely to relate facts, but to impart life and suggestiveness to the story of the great Republic. To excite interest and sympathy, and to suggest thought, may not be the least important of the teacher's functions.
