History of Alexander the Great
Inquiries concerning the intellectual powers and the investigation of truth by John Abercrombie( )

64 editions published between 1833 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 642 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The text of the following work, strictly speaking, is Dr Abercrombie's treatise on the Human Mind, entire. In connection with this treatise, however, the original edition has two articles attached to, it by the author, for the sole benefit of the class whom he was addressing, viz. a class of medical students. The first to which we refer is a history of the science of Intellectual Philosophy, prefixed to the work; the second, an admirable set of directions, to guide medical students in their professional inquiries. These treatises do not of necessity constitute a part of a treatise on the Philosophy of Mind. They are accordingly omitted in this edition. What, in the editor's opinion, constitutes the treatise itself, is published entire, without alterations or omissions, the editor holding his author's language sacred. The additions which have been made are intended, not to supply any supposed deficiencies in the original, but simply to adapt it to a purpose for which the book is, in the main, admirably suited: they are intended as nearly as was possible to be such additional explanations as the editor conceived the author would himself have made, had he have had in view, whilst preparing the book, the purpose to which it is now applied"--Preface.

Jacob Abbott was one of the most prolific American writers of history in the nineteenth century, writing many biographies on the world?s most influential leaders in a clear and exciting style. This comprehensive volume, first published in 1849 and part of Abbott?s Illustrated Histories series, details the remarkable and fascinating life of William the Conqueror, the first Norman King of England. The king?s life is researched and recorded thoroughly, chronicling the years from his illegitimate birth to his calamitous burial. Born in Normandy and promised the throne of England by King Edward, William decided to invade the country after another contender for the crown took the throne. Abbott recounts the famous Battle of Hastings in great detail, and with an enthralling narrative captures the young conqueror?s struggles, ambition, and aspirations during his time in power. William the Conqueror?s reign in England significantly transformed the country, whose residents resented being ruled by a foreigner who relied entirely upon his army to keep the country in subjugation and who suppressed their many revolts. With a brief history of the Saxon and Danish kings of England and the dukes of Normandy, and original engravings, this book is great for anyone interested in the political struggles of the Middle Ages, and is a valuable addition to any history buff?s library
