|Notes:||"I have based history upon geography, illustrating one by pictures, and the other by maps. I have written for the young, but as I desire that these volumes may not be forced upon any body as a monitor or master, I say ... that it is designed for families. ... The chapters are short, and questions are added at the end. I do not ask any one to read these questions, but if parents, brothers, or sisters wish to hear the young beginner recite the chapters, they have the easy means of doing so."--Preface, vol. 1, p. [vii]-viii.
