PREFACE TO SECOND EDITION.

In the preparation of this edition, every endeavour has been made to render the work more worthy of the favour with which it has already been received. The whole matter has been carefully re-read, and the dates compared; large additions have been made, especially to the constitutional and biographical sections; and a table of British authors has been added.

The Author desires to express his sincere thanks to several gentlemen who have either pointed out errors, or suggested valuable improvements; and he will feel exceedingly obliged to any reader who may do him a similar service with respect to the present edition.

HIPPERHOLME GRAMMAR SCHOOL,
