Excerpt from A Compendium of Ancient and Modern History, With Questions, Adapted to the Use of Schools and Academies: Also an Appendix, Containing the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States, a Biographical Sketch of Eminent Personages, With a Chronological Table of Remarkable Events, Discoveries, Etc., From the Creation to the Year, 1845 In a work which professes to be a compilation, and which, from its nature and design, must consist of materials chieﬂy selected from the writings of others, it is scarcely necessary to apologize for the use which the author has made of the labors of his predecessors. He has, in general, omitted the names of the authors from whom he has made his selections, because he frequently thought proper to change their style, and alter their language, in order to suit the connection, and adapt them to the nature of the Compendium. The author is well aware that much improvement might be made in the pre sent edition, and regrets, exceedingly, that several errors will be found upon its pages, but generally of a typographical character. But those who are acquainted with the arduous task of passing the first edition of a work of this nature through the press, will readily overlook its many imperfections. In orthography, Webster has generally been followed as the standard. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
