Excerpt from Ancient History, Literature and Art: Topically Arranged With References Embracing a Geographical Method of Memorizing History

This work is designed for the use of teachers, schools, families and literary circles. Its obje?t is to enable the student to acquire a knowledge of history with less study than is required by the regular text-book method. While the principles of the map are neither new nor original, it has been simplified in details and plan which adapts it to general use.

The object of the topical method is to give prominence to important names and events, to emphasize and impress upon the memory what is most essential and avoid unnecessary detail. The object of the reference system is the study of a subject from the standpoint of different authors, without the loss of time usually required in searching for references. In the selection of references, care has been taken to give the best authorities usually found in public and private libraries. In the paging of the references errors may be found, and in some cases the references may not cover the whole subject as lettered, but are given with that object in view. An alphabetical list of books referred to in the work, with the year of their publication and name of publisher, is given in the appendix. References in the work are only expected to correspond to the year of the publication as given in the catalogue.

The purpose of the map is to hold the threads of history continuous by the aid of the eye without taxing the memory, as illustrated in the study of geography by the aid of maps. The map study in this work is practically the same, the centuries taking the phice of countries, persons and events of history answering to important places in geographical study. The topics and their subdivisions are arranged with a view to the main points of history and their historical sequence, tracing the progress of civilization, through the influence of religion, politics, literature and art; special attention being given to the rise, decline and fall of nations and causes therefor. The system is very elastic and may be condensed or expanded, according to the time at the students disposal, or a choice of subject, history, art or literature may be pursued. As an outline of chronology the work is valuable as a ready reference.
