The first idea of this History was conceived many years ago, at a time when ancient Hellas was known to the English public chic?y through the pages of Mitford; and my purpose in writing it was to rectify the erroneous statements as to mat ter of fact which that history contained, as well as to present the general phaenomena of the Grecian world under what I thought a juster and more com prehensive point of view. My leisure however was not at that time equal to the execution of any large literary undertaking nor is it until within the last three or four years that I have been able to devote to the work that continuous and exclusive labour, without which, though much may be done to illus trate detached points, no entire or complicated subject can ever be set forth in a manner worthy to meet the public eye.
