BY SAMUEL. MAUNDER, •--
Author of the "Tmasury of Knowledge." " Biogrspbi

THE HISTORY OF AMERICA,
EDITED DT JnuN IN.WC,Esq.
The republication of this valuable work has been
undertaken partly ou account of the high favor with
which it has been received in England, but chiefly to
consideration of its intrinsic value, arising from the
felicitous adoption of the plen to a want that has been
long and generally
.felt and from the judgment ant.
fidelity manifested in its execltion.. The idea of giv.
ing in a single work, of no very forrbidalile dimensions,'
a sufficient outline 3f the world's whole history, anti
similar matinee of the history of every nation, is so
Obvious, judicious and appropriate as to require no
eutogium. Every Janson who cares at all for • the
- acquisition of useful knowledge must desire to loess
such a general know:Paige of past events, not only in his
own country but in ali countries, as shall enable hint
to understand the perpetually recurring allusions that are
found in almost.'any course of general reading; because
for want of such understanding there is always a serious
diminution both of pleasure and profit even in the
of such works as ore designed chiefly for amuse
ment. For instance, most of Sir Walter Scott's novels
are founded upon history, and aboard with reference to
historal events and personages, a want of some acquain•
tanee with which detracts seriously from the interest and
delight they ar• so well qualified to awoken; and so of
most other works belonging to the better cuss of what
is called light literature. Bat the difficulty has been to
obtain this general !mowledge , without Ow , through
many hooka, requiring a greateceopenditure ottium and
money than most persons ore able or willing to ah:'rd;
and toobviate such dilficuhy has been the purpos of 11.:r.
His plan has the'merit of completeness, and is un
doubtedly the best that could have been desired. 11.
gives -first a genend sketch of ancient end modem his
tory—a rapid and comprehensive Mars-eye view, as it
were of the rise and progress of nations, the most im
portant incidents of their career, arid their relations to
each other; and after this he takes up the nations
separately, furnishing a concise digest of all that is im
portant or desirable to know concerning each, and thus
affording a sort of key to the changes and events that
were more briefly indicated, rather by their results than
then incidents, in the general sketch or praline. Thus
the salient points of history are brouaht within a man
ageable compass ; and an excellent foundation is laid for
more thorough and extensive reading in reference to
any portion of the world or any epech of which a com
plete knowledge may be desired.
In the execution of this plan theeuthor has been very
successful. His notices of historical ecents.though brief,
are lucid and satisfactory; and he trace's the connection
of effect and cause with singular acumen and generally
with most commendable.freedom from partiality or 'bias;
thus supplying a very good idea of the philosophy of
history as well as of the facts which history records.—
In a word, the work will be found invaluable to the ge
neral reader, and a very useful help to the student.
