#3828,5 Edue T609,35,850
of Boston, (H.U. 1851.)
BOUND MAR 24 1913
Entered according to the Act of Congress, in the year 1833,
By J. E. WORCESTER,
to the Clerk's Office of the District Court of the District of Massachusetts.
The first edition of the Elements of History and of the Historical Atlas, was published in 1826; and after the work had passed through three editions, the book was stereotyped in 1830; since which various impressions have been printed; and the work has received a large measure of the public approbation and patronage. The Elements and the Atlas were designed to be used together, each being materially incomplete without the other. But it is necessary that the books used in most of the schools in this country should be furnished at a very low price; and the expense of the Atlas has operated, in many cases, as an objection against its introduction; so much so, that the book has, in some instances, been used without it. In order, therefore, better to accommodate different classes, the author has been induced to put the book in such a state that it may be used, with convenience and advantage, without the Atlas. This has been accomplished by folding in the volume the Chart of (General) History, and also by inserting a series of Tables of History, which, in a measure, supply the place of the Charts or Tables in the Atlas.
The Elements of History and the Historical Atlas are still published as heretofore, and are to be preferred in all cases in which the additional expense is not felt to be
a serious objection. The Atlas is important to the student not only in facilitating the study of history, but as a work of constant reference. It contains the following Charts:
Chart of (General) History.
Historical Chart of England. Chart of Mythology,
Historical Chart of France. Chart of Sacred History.
Hist. Chart of the German Empire Chart of Ancient Chronology. Historical Chart of Spain. Chart of Modern Chronology. Chart of American History. Chart of Ecclesiastical History. Chart of Biography. Chart of the Sovereigns of Europe.
