Handbook History of the Town of York : From Early Times to the Present (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Handbook History of the Town of York: From Early Times to the Present The historian of low or high degree of attainment is liable to the charge of plagiarism. He can only record facts and describe events and scenes which he gathers from pub lic documents, and from the description of others, save in the matter of contemporary affairs of which he was a witness and perhaps an incident. There are but few facts or inci dents told in the pages of this book which may not be found elsewhere; and it is impossible to narrate events already penned by able writers, and to avoid likeness of expression, especially when one has not the advantage of a classically polished education. Using in part a quotation of Hon. J. C. Stewart - To rescue from oblivion the memory of former incidents, and to render a just tribute of renown to the many great and wonderful actions both of Greeks and Barbarians, Herodotus of Halicarnassus produces this Historical Essay, is the modest introduction to the great work written two thousand three hundred and forty years ago by the Father of History.
