CORNER'S HISTORICAL LIBRARY,

FOR

YOUTH, SCHOOLS, AND FAMILIES:

PUBLISHED BY DEAN & SON, 35, THREADNEEDLE STREET, LONDON:

COMPRISING

A COMPLETE HISTORY OF EVERY NATION IN EUROPE,

Uniformly printed, each country in a separate volume; with illustrations from Historical Subjects, elegantly engraven on Steel, from designs by Franklin, Jones, and Gilbert; and an Accurate Map to each Volume; well bound in cloth, lettered;

COMMENCING WITH THE EARLIEST PERIOD OF AUTHENTIC RECORD, AND BROUGHT DOWN TO THE PRESENT TIME:

ACCURATELY POURTRAYING THE

NATIONAL CHARACTERISTICS, AND DOMESTIC HABITS, OF THE PEOPLE.

BY MISS CORNER,

Author of "Questions on the History of Europe," a Sequel to Mangnall's Historical Questions, &c. &c.

The object of these works,—peculiarly suited to schools and families,—is to furnish the reader with a faithful history of each nation, interspersing it with an accurate account of the religion, laws, customs, national characteristics, and domestic habits of the people, in the various periods of their history.

In writing these elementary treatises, one especial object has been kept in view—that of adapting them to the capacities of young people and occasional readers: by this means, while they embrace information and entertainment for all, they attract the rising generation, by simplicity of language, and clearness of detail, and render comparatively easy the attainment of a knowledge of the leading events of history.

The many high encomiums awarded to these works by the public press, and the very considerable acceptance they have met with in schools and families, are proofs that the efforts of the author to render historical knowledge pleasing, and easy of attainment, are not unappreciated by those to whom the care of the rising generation is entrusted.

THESE SERIES OF HISTORIES, BY MISS CORNER, COMPRISE THE FOLLOWING:

THE HISTORY OF ENGLAND;

A New Edition; with Chronological Table; Twentieth Thousand; 3s. 6d. cloth, lettered; or bound up with Questions on the History, 4s.

Illustrated with a Map, and five Historical Engravings,—1. Rowena presenting wine to Vortigern. 2. King John signing Magna Charta. 3. Henry VII. proclaimed at the Battle of Bosworth Field. 4. Oliver Cromwell dissolving the long Parliament. 5. Coronation of Queen Victoria—the Peers rendering Homage.

"It is important that history meant for young Englishmen should be free from political poison, and this book will be found unexceptionable on this score."—British Banner.

"We have much pleasure in stating that this book is in another new edition, and its merits deserve it; it is well written, and admirably adapted for a school or reward book."—Academic and Collegiate Circular.

"Miss Corner's England and Wales, we perceive, has just reached another new edition, in which the addition of the chronological table will be a great desideratum; the work is well written, and is equally adapted for a school, or, indeed, a gift book."—Bent's Literary Advertiser.

"We know no histories more likely to prove useful and agreeable in the instruction of children."—Britannia.

"The style of the book throughout renders it worthy of the support it has secured."—Gospel Magazine.

"Miss Corner has chosen her epochs skilfully, and sketched them in a manner to make an adequate impression."—Literary Gazette.

THE HISTORY OF IRELAND;

New Edition; Seventh Thousand; 2s. 6d. cloth, lettered; or bound up with Questions on the History, 3s.

Illustrated with a Map, and three Historical Engravings.—1. St. Patrick preaching Christianity to the King and Nobles. 2. Lord Thomas Fitzgerald renouncing his allegiance to Henry VIII. 3. Entry of James II. into Dublin.

"The history before us is well executed."—Literary Gazette.

"The Historical facts, always correct, are detailed in plain and concise language. This is one of the best class books on Ireland, for young people."—Limerick Standard.

The beauty of composition throughout the writings of Miss Corner is singular and fascinating.—Sun.

Miss Corner has acquired a deserved celebrity for the singularly-attractive and intelligible manner she has in narrating history.—Critic.

THE HISTORY OF SCOTLAND;

New Edition; Ninth Thousand; 2s. 6d. cloth, lettered; or bound up with Questions on the History, 3s.

Illustrated with a Map, and three Historical Engravings.—1. Coronation of the Infant King David II. and his Queen, at Scone. 2. James V. taking refuge at Sterling Castle. 3. Queen Mary's Escape to England.

"We sincerely recommend this history as peculiarly suited to the meridian of schools."—Ayr Observer.

"This meritorious work is written in a very easy and agreeeble style, perfectly adapted to the capacities of the young persons for whom it is intended."—Times.

"We have perused this history with much interest, delighted with the ease and perspicuity of style, and with the clearness and force of the narrative."—Edinburgh Chronicle.

"Peculiarly adapted for instructive family reading."—Caledonian Mercury.

THE HISTORY OF ROME;

From accepted English and Foreign authorities, as Macpherson's Annals of Commerce, Keightley's Roman History, Smith's and Adam's Greek and Roman Antiquities; Dr. Arnold, Niebuhr, &c. With Questions to each Chapter, a Chronological Table, and a Map of the Roman Empire; 3s. 6d. bound in cloth, lettered.

"Miss Corner's History of Rome will assuredly ere long supersede all the Roman histories at present used in schools, it is well written, and the historical facts elicited by the learned labours of Niebuhr, Arnold, &c, are made to take the place of the fabulous accounts which have hitherto passed current as authentic history; at the same time the popular early legends are not omitted, but their doubtful nature pointed out."—Westmister Review.

"An excellent feature in this history is the continual effort to open out to the young reader the household life and social customs of the Romans, for without this, ancient history can have no reality for children."—Educational Times.

"Its contents form a correct history of the Roman empire, from its beginning."—Church of England Journal.

THE HISTORIES OF SPAIN AND PORTUGAL;

Illustrated with a Map, and three Historical Engravings,—1. Inez De Castro entreating the King to save her life. 2. Interview of Columbus with Queen Isabella. 3. The Cortez taking the Oath of Allegiance.

"Miss Corner gives a clear and striking account of the different kingdoms that at various times were founded in Spain."—Edinburgh Review.

"So concise and plain as to be at once adapted to the capacities and volatility of young people, while they are useful compendiums for adults."—Times.

THE HISTORY OF FRANCE;

Tenth Thousand, New Edition, with continuation of events to the Presidency of Louis Napoleon Bonaparte; 2s 6d. cloth, lettered; or bound up with Questions on the History, 3s.

Illustrated with a Map, and three Historical Engravings,—1. The Coronation of Charles VII. 2. A French Tilt, or Tournament. 3. Bonaparte's Expedition across the Alps.

"The Writer has borne in mind throughout, that simplicity of style was essential to her purpose, and has selected those facts which are best adapted to give an idea of the events and the customs of the successive ages."—Baptist Magazine.

"Miss Corner appears to be an excellent historian for the school room. She narrates with fluency and clearness, and in a concise and lively manner, the leading facts, so as to convey the spirit of history, and indicate the characteristics of the people and the country, as well as the rulers and famous characters."—Spectator.

"We look upon Miss Corner's work with great interest, as being peculiarly adapted to the minds of young people, and being free from that inversion of facts by which history is so often made subservient to party purposes."—Nonconformist.

THE HISTORY OF DENMARK, SWEDEN, AND NORWAY;

2s. 6d. cloth, lettered; with a Map, and two elegant Historical Engravings.

1. A Norwegian Family listening to the Songs of their Scalds, 2. Submission of the Order of Nobles to Frederick III.

"The two chief qualities of a good book are usefulness of subject and cleverness of handling, and these requisites Miss Corner's histories exhibit in an eminent degree. The frequent intermixtures of government between the three countries have indeed tended materially to embarrass this portion of European history, but Miss Corner by an accurate arrangement of dates, and a judicious connection of events, has set every thing in a clear light."—Post Magazine.

THE HISTORY OF POLAND AND RUSSIA;

3s. 6d. cloth, lettered; with a Map, and three elegant Historical Engravings.

1. Assassination of Demetrius. 2. John Cassimer, worn out by misfortune, resigning his crown to the Diet. 3. Flight of the Inhabitants of Moscow at the approach of the French army.

"This volume forms one of a series of histories for the use of young persons; the present volume is, however, more descriptive than historical, which we consider an advantage; the living manners of the Poles and Russians being much more instructive and entertaining to young English readers."—Tait's Magazine.

"Miss Corner has succeeded in compressing into a small compass all the leading events of history, without the slightest obscurity, or without sinking her book into a dry chronicle of facts."—Britannia.

THE HISTORY OF TURKEY AND THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE; INCLUDING GREECE, SYRIA, AND THE HOLY LAND;

3s. 6d. cloth, lettered; with a Map, and three elegant Engravings.

1. Selim II., receiving the Ambassadors of Maximilian, Emperor of Germany. 2. Mahomet expounding the Koran at Medina. 5. Reschid Pacha reading the Hatti Scheriff of 1839 to the Ambassadors and Great Officers of State.

"The narrative is so well arranged and so agreeably diversified by occasional remarks on individual and national character, as to render history attractive even to the very young; and the information is conveyed in a style remarkable for its unaffected simplicity and clearness."—Morning Post.

"The leading features of Turkish manners, laws, and policy, are accurately and forcibly pourtrayed, while the narrative is distinguished for simplicity, perspicuity, and completeness." Conservative Journal.

THE HISTORY OF ITALY AND SWITZERLAND;

3s. 6d. cloth, lettered; with a Map, and three elegant Historical Engravings.

1. Pope Martin V, riding through the streets of Rome, the Emperor and Elector leading his Horse. 2. Massaniello haranguing the Populace. 3. William Tell and the other Swiss Patriots holding their nightly meetings.

"Brief, clear, and correct; well adapted for young persons."—Leamington Spa Chronicle.

"Written with great care and ability."—John Bull.

"A very useful educational book."—Literary Gazette.

THE HISTORY OF HOLLAND AND BELGIUM;

2s. 6d. cloth, lettered, with a Map, and two elegant Historical Engravings.

1. Assassination of William of Orange. 2. Admiral Van Tromp shot whilst animating his sailors.

"The present, like the preceeding histories from the pen of this intelligent lady, is distinguished for its conciseness, elegance of expression, and clearness of detail."—Manchester Times.

"A condensed mass of knowledge, well put together, and prettily illustrated."—Church and State Gazette.

"To a pleasing, fluent, narrative style, Miss corner unites a nice discrimination, and never suffers matters which sully the mind to appear in her pages."—Surplice.

"We cannot too strongly recommend these admirable Histories, and we feel satisfied that no parent or preceptor can place better works in the hands of a youth."—Academic and Collegiate Circular.

"Altogether we do not know of a more agreeable or instructive present for youth; and each history is illustrated with a map and engravings, which considering the price of the work, are of a superior description."—Times.

"The authoress shows much discrimination in conveying in language suited to her readers the results of the laborious investigations of other scholars."—Educational Times.

AN ACCURATE HISTORY OF GREECE.

From accepted Authorities, English and Foreign; as Grote's and Chambers's Histories of Greece, Smith's Greek and Roman Antiquities, Thirlwall and Wordsworth's Greece, Smith's Mythology and Biography, Annals of Commerce, Library of Useful Knowledge, &c. With Questions to each Chapter, a Chronological Table, Index, and a coloured Map of the Greek States. Price 3s. bound in cloth, lettered.

We have not met with any History of Greece that contains, within the same compass, so large an amount of interesting and valuable information. Miss Corner writes concisely, perspicuously, and sensibly.—Westley Banner.

A concise History of Greece, well adapted for Schools.—Cambridge Independent Press.

This is a very excellent compendium of Grecian History, and such are the merits of the Work that we shall not be surprised at its becoming a popular educational book.—The British Mother's Magazine.

Remarkably clear in its arrangement, while the simple and easy style in which it is written, peculiarly fits it for popular use, it displays much careful resourch on the part of its Author.—Englishwoman's Magazine.

Miss Corner has the art of writing so as to be understood by youthful readers.—London Literary Journal.

By far the best introductory School History of Greece we have ever seen.—The British Banner.

A combination of simplicity of narrative, with comprehensiveness of detail, admirably adapted for the use of the School-room.—Douglas Jerrald's Weekly News.

With feminine delicacy, Miss Corner omits what should be omitted, giving meanwhile a narrative of the broad character and features that mark the progress of a nation.—Express, Evening Paper.

The results of the best modern scholarship are here given.—Leader.

Miss Corner's Histories require no recommendation of ours to bring them into notice. This Volume, her History of Greece, is written with great clearness and fluency, the fabulous tales which disfigure so many professedly authentic histories of the Greeks are discarded. We cordially recommend this work for the School-room, or family circle.—Gospel Herald.
