A GENERAL SKETCH OF POLITICAL HISTORY

FROM THE EARLIEST TIMES.

Crown 8vo. With Maps.

CONTENTS Early Peoples and Empires : to 500 B.C. -The Glory of Greece and the Rise of Rome: to 200 B.C. - The Roman Dominion : to 476 A.D.--The Early Middle Ages : to 1080 A.D.—The Later Middle Ages : to 1470 A.D.The Age of Hapsburg Ascendency: to 1660 A.D.—The Bourbon Age : to 1789 A.D.-The European Convulsion : to 1815 A. D.-The Modern Nations.

Any one who masters the manual which Mr. Innes has given us will have made a fair start in historical study.'-Spectator.

* An altogether admirable sketch which should be of great value to the student of history.'Aberdeen Journal. Such a book was much needed, and will be warmly welcomed.'

Guardian. 'Each period is thoroughly discussed with a uniform conciseness. It was no small feat, for example, to condense into thirty pages the essential features of Greek history from the Persian invasions to the death of Alexander. More valuable still is the emphasis laid on the specific events which link each period to its predecessor. Mr. Innes truly observes, this conception of the wholeness of history is needful to the right understanding of our own or any country's history, and his work in this respect should fill a want not only by the advanced student but by the general reader.'

Westminster Gazette. “This is by a writer who has done a good deal of sound historical work, and who endeavours here to supply a manual which shall bring out the unity of history—the ground plan of general history.'Times.

*Concise, well proportioned and astonishingly comprehensive for a narrative so brief, it makes an excellent school history and should prove useful also to advanced students who wish to refresh their conception of the unity of history as a whole.'-Scotsman.

“We cannot conceive a better book to put into the hands of young people by way of introduction to European history. The maps and tables are as simple and clear of irrelevant matter as the text. There is an Index.'

'It is needless to say that Mr. Innes has set before himself a very difficult task, but he has done it well.

The leading idea has been well conceived and skilfully carried out.'

Glasgow Herald. Mr. Innes has a rather unusual gift of neat arrangement and lucid expression, and he is able also to take comprehensive and balanced views. The chapter on India is particularly good.'- Guardian.

JUNIOR BRITISH HISTORY.
Small Fcap. 8vo, with Maps. 25. 6d.

CONTENTS
Before the Norman Conquest : 1066—The Making of a Nation--National
Growth-The Tudor Period—Under the Stuarts—The Georgian Era-- From
George Iv. to George v.

'It is written in better style than most text-books of the sort, and takes more cognisance of (a) literature, (6) social conditions.'- Preparatory Schools Review.

‘The treatment is concise, yet clear and methodical, with helpful lists of notable dates, famous men and leading statistics. . . . An important point for Scotch teachers is that the History of Scotland is not altogether neglected as is so often the case in such text-books.'- Aberdeen Daily Journal.

'He has a real gift for summarising history in perfectly simple language. ... He even finds space to devote to English literature, and each section is followed by some useful notes. The little volume will be of more service than many more expensive and bulky manuals.' - Saturday Review.

It is really an interesting and concise history, well adapted for juniors, carried out on the same lines as the author's “ Outline of British History." There is good reason for thinking it will be acceptable to junior class-rooms.'
