Excerpt from History of the Latin and Teutonic Nations: From 1494 to 1514 More than eighty-four years have passed since Leopold von Ranke published, in October, 1824, his earliest work, "The Latin and Teutonic Nations." He was then not quite twenty-nine; when he died, on May 23, 1886, he was in his ninety-first year, but was still at work on his unfinished "World History." Between the first book and the last there is a close connection. It may, indeed, be said that his ."Latin and Teutonic Nations," his histories of the Popes, of the Spanish and Ottoman Empires, of the Reformation, of the Wars of Religion in France, of the Seventeenth Century in England, and other works, were all exploratory voyages for the discovery of the world, which was from early years his goal. "You know," he wrote in 1826, "my old aim, the discovery of the sea of World History and again in 1828, "the discovery of the unknown World History would be my greatest fortune." It is in this sense that Lord Acton has called him the most prompt and fortunate of European pathfinders. Thus, a quite peculiar interest is inherent in the first essay of the great historian's ceaseless historical activity, an essay which decided, or rather indicated, the direction which his intellect was to take. A revised translation of a juvenile work published not far from a century ago is a lot which has fallen to few modern historians. As such has been Ranke's fortune, it may be instructive to form some estimate of the causes. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
