Synopsis: The more a nation advances in civilization and self-esteem, the more will it appreciate the precept put forth by the ancient sages, Know thyself, and the more attentively will it investigate the views and tastes of other nations: since it is especially by observing others that we learn more thoroughly to understand ourselves. Uncivilized nations consider scarcely anything worthy of note except extraordinary events, which surprise by their novelty or by their immediate and startling effects. The historical records of such peoples generally consist of accounts of conquests and defeats in battle, and of occurrences which have produced sudden changes in their social life. The conviction that the gradual development of the mental and moral faculties of the people especially deserves consideration, because it affects most deeply the destiny and happiness of man, gains ground only after much experience, and with the increase of knowledge. The interest evinced, since the beginning of the present century, by several European nations in the popular songs, folk-lore, and other monuments of the mental condition of man in different parts of the world, is therefore a sign of progress not less delightful than the most important discoveries which have been made through the agency of practical science.

About the Publisher
Forgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, History, Folklore and Mythology.
Forgotten Books' Classic Reprint Series utilizes the latest technology to regenerate facsimiles of historically important writings. Careful attention has been made to accurately preserve the original format of each page whilst digitally enhancing the aged text.
Product Description: This book was originally published prior to 1923, and represents a reproduction of an important historical work, maintaining the same format as the original work. While some publishers have opted to apply OCR (optical character recognition) technology to the process, we believe this leads to sub-optimal results (frequent typographical errors, strange characters and confusing formatting) and does not adequately preserve the historical character of the original artifact. We believe this work is culturally important in its original archival form. While we strive to adequately clean and digitally enhance the original work, there are occasionally instances where imperfections such as blurred or missing pages, poor pictures or errant marks may have been introduced due to either the quality of the original work or the scanning process itself. Despite these occasional imperfections, we have brought it back into print as part of our ongoing global book preservation commitment, providing customers with access to the best possible historical reprints. We appreciate your understanding of these occasional imperfections, and sincerely hope you enjoy seeing the book in a format as close as possible to that intended by the original publisher.
