Excerpt from Fine Books

Entitled to the modest praise of being superior to the rest of its author's book-makings, since it has been ten years on the stocks and much of it has been written two or three times over, either because the writer's own information had increased or to take account of the successful researches of others.

Pioneering is always so exciting that recognition of the impossibility of carrying out the full plan of the book within the limits either of the present volume or of the author's working life was not made without sincere regret. The subject, however, of the abandoned chapter was not only very large, but very miscellaneous, and the survey for it would have had to include at least three other countries (france, Germany, and the United States) besides our own. To one section, moreover, that of illustrations in colour, a separate.
