Excerpt from A Students History of Greece With the consent of Professor J. B. Bury, I have prepared an edition of his " History of Greece for Beginners" which may serve as a text-book for Secondary Schools in this country. In preparing this edition, I have confined myself chiefly to excision, although in places a somewhat different arrangement of material has been adopted. No statement of fact has been changed, and as far as possible the author's exact language has been retained. This is especially true in the chapters dealing with Alexander, where, to keep the spirited account of the original, the proportion of this revision may have been sacrificed. I have ventured to add brief paragraphs dealing with some of the more important Greek authors, and to expand the paragraphs on the adornment of Athens; and have supplied a large number of new maps. To make the book more serviceable in Secondary Schools, a very few of the more important references to supplementary reading which I have found useful have been appended to each chapter; for those who wish more detailed topical reading, references have been given to "A History Syllabus for Secondary Schools, prepared by a Special Committee of the New England Teachers' Association." I am under deepest obligations to Professor Edward Channing of Harvard University, who has read my manuscript and made many valuable suggestions. Acknowledgment is also due to my friend, Mr. H. B. Hinckley, who has assisted in reading the proof. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
