Excerpt from History of England, Vol. 1 of 3: From the First Invasion by the Romans to the Accession of Henry VIII

This Work contains the History of the Southern Division of this Island, from its first Invasion by the Romans to the Accession of Henry VIII. To render it worthy the patronage of the public, the author has spared no pains in consulting the most ancient historians, and comparing their narratives with such authentic documents as are known to exist. Anxious, at the same time, to avoid the two extremes of prolixity on the one hand, and of brevity on the other, he has been careful to introduce nothing which he deemed trivial or irrelevant, and to exclude nothing which appeared to him important in its consequences, or illustrative of the character of the times.

The historian ought not to confine himself to the barren recital of facts. It is his duty to trace the silent progress of nations from barbarism to refinement; and to mark their successive improvements in the arts of legislation and government But in the performance of this duty he must keep a steady rein on the imagination; or he will mistake fiction for truth, and write a romance in the place of a history.

Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The History of England, Vol. 1 of 10: From the First Invasion by the Romans to the Accession of William and Mary in 1688 Since the year 1819, in which the first portion of this work was sent to the press, many new sources of information have been opened to the writer of English history. From time to time ancient documents of high interest and indisputable authority have been rescued from oblivion by searches made under the auspices of the Record Commission, or through the zeal and enterprise of literary societies, and of private individuals. It has been my endeavour to embody the substance of all such discoveries in this present library edition, not indeed by the introduction of notes or dissertations at corresponding epochs, but by inter weaving the new matter with the old in one conti nuons narrative throughout the work. At the same time I have availed myself of the opportunity to fix the dates of events with greater precision, to correct former errors of the pen and of the press, and to alter certain paragraphs, occasionally whole chapters, of the last edition, by recasting or expanding them in con formity with the improvements which I wished to introduce.
