A number of works of this nature have already appeared, and many of them highly approved. Yet, in point of arrangement, and in the general matter of contents, it would seem that some improvement might still be made. The division of history into periods, a system which has been followed by many respectable historians, would appear, upon the whole, rather to obscure than aid the memory. The author, therefore, has thought proper to pursue the history of the various nations and institutions, by preserving an unbroken series of events in regular succession, from their earliest authentic records to their decline, or to the present time.
