PREFACE.

This Work is a brief Universal History, upon scriptural principles. There is a freshness about it, from its German origin, which is pleasing to English readers, who may find in the BRIT'ONS AND SAXONS, THE MIDDLE AGES OP ENGLAND, and the historical papers in the VISITOR, more full particulars of their own country.

In preparing this volume for the press, some parts have been revised or abridged, and a few particulars added; also, some opinions expressed by the author, on passing and future events, have been omitted.

The Historical Maps exhibit the known world at four different periods:-1. At the Foundation of Rome. 2. At the Birth of Christ. 3. At the Reformation. 4. A. D. 1840.
