About five years ago, after a meeting of a considerable number of Public Schoolmasters, it was proposed to the Author that he should write a School History of England. As the suggestion was generally supported, he undertook the task. Starting from the supposition that his readers know but little of the subject, he has tried to give a plain narrative of events, and at the same time so far to trace their connection, causes, and effects, as to supply the student with a more reasonable and intelligent idea of the course of English History than is given by any mere compendium of facts. It has been thought convenient to retain the ordinary divisions into reigns, and to follow primarily, throughout, the Political History of the country; at the same time, considerable care has Deen given to bring out the great Social Changes which have occurred from time to time, and to follow the growth of the people and nation at large, as wellas that of the Monarchy or of special classes. A considerable number of genealogies of the leading Houses of the 14th and 15th centuries have been introduced to illustrate that period. The later periods are related to considerably greater length than the earlier ones. The foreign events in which England took part have been, as far as space allowed, brought into due prominence; while, by the addition of numerous maps and plans, in which every name mentioned will be found, it is hoped that reference to a separate atlas will be found unnecessary. The marginal analysis has been collected at the beginning of the volume, so as to form an abstract of the History, suitable for the use of those who are beginning the study.
