will be limited, as much as possible, to their influence on the internal and constitutional progress of England. Military history and foreign affairs will be mentioned only so far as is necessary to explain the causes and the sequence of events, or to give interest to the narrative. The object kept in view throughout will be to show how England came to be what it is.

To execute such a task satisfactorily requires on the part of the writers knowledge, judgment, and sympathy with teacher as well as with pupil; and in furtherance of this object it will be seen that the writers who have been chosen are historical students, who are or have been directly connected with education. It may therefore be expected that their knowledge will enable them to select all that is important, and tbat their educational experience will enable them to express their meaning clearly and forcibly to the young.
