Excerpt from History of France, From the Earliest Times to the Present Day In preparing the present volume, the author has endeavoured to give the history as lively and striking a character as was con sistent with fidelity of delineation; and to fix the attention of the student by such biographical details as his limited space would allow. It is hoped that the reader will feel a degree of personal interest in the leading personages, and will retain a distinct recol lection of their characters and dispositions, and of the effect which they respectively produced on the events of their time. The whole narrative has been comprised in so short a space, that it may properly find a place in our common seminaries of learning as a part of the historical course, without employing too much of the time devoted to school instruction. The space devoted to the career of Napoleon, has been limited to a few pages, as that period is considered of sufficient importance to claini'. A separate volume, which is now in press.
