in which all Unnecessary Statistics and Unimportant
Details are Omitted. What does it matter to nine-tenths of mankind whether William married Blanche or Matilda-whether this king had three wives or six-whether that one was crowned at Westminster or Winchester ; but it does concern each and all of us to know why a devastating war raged between the king and his parliament; what principles were involved; and how it might have been avoided : to trace the growth of trial by jury through successive generations; to learn how one man's character influenced the whole realm for good or evil ; to know that our deeds outlive us, and bear fruit of which we little dream.
By the same Author. Price One Shilling.
In this little work few kings are mentioned by name. Their births, their marriages, their deaths, their wars, squabbles, and disasters, are only alluded to when these have had a great and lasting effect on the land they governed. Its object is to teach principles, not persons; to show how peoples and nations grew, and to trace the struggle for and against arbitrary power, which has taken place, not in France only, but in all nations growing to maturity.
