NEW MEDIEVAL AND MODERN HISTORY
From Charlemagne to the Present Day
By SAMUEL BANNISTER HARDING, Ph.D., Professor of European History, Indiana
Based upon the author's "Essentials in Mediaeval and Modern History,"
prepared in consultation with ALBERT BUSHNELL HART, LL.D., Professor of
History, Harvard University.
While based on the author's previous Essentials in Mediaeval and Modern
History, in the present volume the plan has been so reorganized, the scope
so extended, and the matter so largely rewritten, that the result is
practically a new book. The present volume reflects the suggestions of many
teachers who have used the previous work in their classes. The aim of this
book has been to increase the emphasis on social, industrial, and cultural
topics and to enable the student to understand modern conditions and
The narrative is brought fully up-to-date, including such recent events as
the British Parliament Act of 1911, the Italian-Turkish War, and the Balkan
War, 1912-1913. Each topic is made definite and concrete, and such
important subjects as the unification of Italy and the unification of
Germany are treated in separate chapters.
The teaching apparatus has been made as useful as possible by the
arrangement and the typography of the text and by the addition of
chronological tables, lists of important dates, suggestive topics and
questions for the pupil to investigate, and brief directions for general
Adequate illustrations and maps are inserted profusely throughout the text.
Variety and color are imparted to the narrative by frequent quotations from
the sources, and by striking characterizations from modern works.

OUTLINES FOR REVIEW IN HISTORY
By CHARLES BERTRAM NEWTON, Head of the Department of History in
Lawrenceville School, and EDWARD BRYANT TREAT, Master in Lawrenceville
* * * * *
Greek History Roman History English History American History
* * * * *
These little manuals help the teacher of history solve the problem of
bringing out the subject as a whole, and of so focusing it as to make the
picture clear-cut and vivid in the pupil's mind--in other words, they give
the proper perspective to the prominent figures and the smaller details,
the multitude of memories and impressions made by the text-book, note-book,
and class room work. The books are intended primarily for review, and
especially for students preparing for college.
These outlines embody brief summaries in chronological order of the leading
facts and events, and throughout ease of reference has been considered of
prime importance. Except in most unusual cases they should not be
introduced into the class until after the work in the text-book is
finished. However, if the time or facilities of the teacher are greatly
limited, they may be used judiciously with the text-book as an aid to
clearness. Because they are not planned to follow or accompany any
particular text-book on the subject, references to such books have
purposely been omitted.
In the index battles, laws, and wars are grouped chronologically under
those headings, and also in regular alphabetical order. Near the end of
each volume are given fifty typical questions selected from the recent
examinations set for admission to leading colleges, which are intended for
practice in the art of formulating answers.

A SOURCE BOOK OF MEDIAEVAL HISTORY
Edited by FREDERIC AUSTIN OGG, A.M., Assistant in History, Harvard
University, and Instructor in Simmons College.
In this book is provided a collection of documents illustrative of European
life and institutions from the German invasions to the Renaissance. Great
discrimination has been exercised in the selection and arrangement of these
sources, which are intended to be used in connection with the study of
mediaeval history, either in secondary schools, or in the earlier years of
college. Throughout the controlling thought has been to present only those
selections which are of real value and of genuine interest--that is, those
which subordinate the purely documentary and emphasize the strictly
narrative, such as annals, chronicles, and biographies. In every case they
contain important historical information or throw more or less indirect
light upon mediaeval life or conditions.
The extracts are of considerable length from fewer sources, rather than a
greater number of more fragmentary ones from a wider range. The
translations have all been made with care, but for the sake of younger
pupils simplified and modernized as much as close adherence to the sense
would permit. An introductory explanation, giving at some length the
historical setting of the extract, with comments on its general
significance, and also a brief sketch of the writer, accompany each
selection or group of selections. The footnotes supply somewhat detailed
aid to the understanding of obscure illusions, omitted passages, and
especially names and technical terms. The index is very full.
Typographically the book is unusually well arranged with a view of aiding
the pupil in its interpretation.

ESSENTIALS IN ENGLISH HISTORY
From the Earliest Records to the Present Day. By ALBERT PERRY WALKER, A.M.,
Master in History, English High School, Boston. In consultation with ALBERT
BUSHNELL HART, LL.D., Professor of History, Harvard University
Like the other volumes of the Essentials in History Series, this text-book
is intended to form a year's work in secondary schools, following out the
recommendation of the Committee of Seven, and meeting the requirements of
the College Entrance Examination Board, and of the New York State Education
Department. It contains the same general features, the same pedagogic
apparatus, and the same topical method of treatment. The text is
continuous, the sectional headings being placed in the margin. The maps and
illustrations are worthy of special mention.
The book is a model of good historical exposition, unusually clear in
expression, logical and coherent in arrangement, and accurate in statement.
The essential facts in the development of the British Empire are vividly
described, and the relation of cause and effect is clearly brought out.
The treatment begins with a brief survey of the whole course of English
history, deducing therefrom three general movements: (1) the fusing of
several races into the English people; (2) the solution by that people of
two great problems: free and democratic home government, and practical,
enlightened government of foreign dependencies; and (3) the extreme
development of two great fields of industry, commerce and manufacture. The
narrative follows the chronological order, and is full of matter which is
as interesting as it is significant, ending with a masterly summary of
England's contribution to civilization.

WEBSTER'S SECONDARY SCHOOL DICTIONARY
Full cloth, 8vol., 864 pages. Containing over 70,000 words, with 1000
This new dictionary is based on Webster's New International Dictionary, and
therefore conforms to the best present usage. It presents the largest
number of words and phrases ever included in a school dictionary--all
those, however new, likely to be needed by any pupil. It is a reference
book for the reader and a guide in the use of English, both oral and
written. It fills every requirement that can reasonably be expected of a
dictionary of moderate size.
This new book gives the preference to forms of spelling now current in the
United States, in cases of doubt leaning toward the simpler forms that may
be coming into use. In the matter of pronunciation such alternatives are
included as are in very common use, but the one that is preferred is
clearly indicated. Each definition is in the form of a specific statement
accompanied by one or more synonyms, between which careful discrimination
In addition, this dictionary includes an unusual amount of supplementary
information of value to students: the etymology, syllabication and
capitalization of words; many proper names from folklore, mythology, and
the Bible; a list of prefixes and suffixes; all irregularly inflected
forms; rules for spelling; 2329 lists of synonyms, in which 3518 words are
carefully discriminated; answers to many questions on the use of correct
English constantly asked by pupils; a guide to pronunciation; abbreviations
used in writing and printing; a list of 1200 foreign words and phrases; a
dictionary of 5400 proper names of persons and places, etc.

ORIENTAL AND GREEK HISTORY
By L.B. LEWIS, Teacher of Ancient History, Central High School, Syracuse,
By EDNA M. McKINLEY, Ph.B., Teacher of Ancient and European History,
Central High School, Syracuse, N.Y.
These notebooks combine the topical and library methods of studying
history. They give a correct historical perspective; they show the relation
of important events to each other; and they drive home in the pupil's mind
certain vital facts by requiring him to perform various kinds of
interesting work, which in each case is definitely laid out.
