PREFACE

THIS book is intended to form a groundwork for three lecture courses given in Harvard University. It contains such apparatus of lists of authorities, materials, and lectures, and such suggestion for reading, written work, and examination, as may set the student on the road; how far, how swiftly, and how safely he goes, must then depend upon his own abilities and resolution.

The book is founded on several previous publications of a similar kind, published under the titles "Outlines," Suggestions for Students," and "Revised Suggestions," but the material has been carefully worked over for the present book. The important part which relates to the weekly papers in United States history has been thoroughly revised, recast, and verified by Mr. W. E. Dorman, for several years the efficient assistant in that work. The subjects for special reports in History 13 have been also culled and restated by Dr. Elliot H. Goodwin and Mr. W. H. Cushing. Mr. D. M. Matteson has verified and enlarged many of the references.

CAMBRIDGE, November 12, 1901.

ALBERT BUSHNELL HART.
