The historical maps in Scribner's American History Series and the Longman's Epochs of American History may also be found useful. The latter have been republished in a little atlas, Epoch Maps illustrating American History, 14 maps, 1892.

An excellent wall map of the United States, well mounted, may be had for $1.25, post-paid, on application by letter addressed to the Commissioner of Public Lands, Washington, D. C.

In the historical courses, since

the courses are devoted rather to developing the elements which underlie and account for the historical events than to descril ing the events in their sequence, the lectures taken together do not anywhere form a complete narrative. Nevertheless the course of ninety lectures (§§ 25, 27) is intended to include the whole field, though many details may be omitted.

The briefer courses of descriptive lectures are also rather selections of typical subjects than parts of a complete series. The more elaborate courses in government (§§ 26 and 28) are intended to cover the ground of American government in systematic form. In Channing and Hart, Guide to the Study of American History, § 7, will be found lists of exercises including both Colonial and United States History.
