BIBLIOGRAPHICAL NOTE

THERE are many comprehensive histories which include the period covered by the present volume, of which a few -- without disparaging the others -- are deserving of mention for some particular reason. David Ramsay History of the American Revolution, 2 vols. ( 1789, and subsequently reprinted), gives but little space to this particular period, but it reveals the contemporary point of view. Richard Hildreth History of the United States, 6 vols. ( 1849- 1852), is another early work that is still of value, although it is written with a Federalist bias. J. B. McMaster History of the People of the United States from the Revolution to the Civil War, 8 vols. ( 1883- 1913), presents a kaleidoscopic series of pictures gathered largely from contemporary newspapers, throwing light upon, and adding color to the story. E. M. Avery History of the United States, of which seven volumes have been published ( 1904- 1910), is remarkable for its illustrations and reproductions of prints, documents, and maps. Edward Channing History of the United States, of which four volumes have appeared ( 1905- 1917), is the latest, most readable, and probably the best of these comprehensive histories.

Although it was subsequently published as Volume VI in a revised edition of his History of the United Statesof America
