GENERAL REFERENCES
The most essential works of general reference for the period covered by this volume are the following:
CHANNING, E., HART, A. B., and TURNER, F. J., Guide to the Study and Reading of American History, Boston, 1912. The best introduction to the bibliography of American history.
CHANNING, E., A History of the United States, 5 vols. so far issued, N. Y., 1905-1921. (Cited as Channing, United States.) The first three volumes are the leading authority on this period.
HART, A. B., Editor, The American Nation: A History. 28 vols., N. Y., 1904-1908. Each volume has a separate author and the first ten volumes cover this period. Useful both for narrative and bibliography. (Cited by individual authors.)
WINSOR, J., Editor, Narrative and Critical History of America. 8 vols., Boston, 1884-89. (Cited as Winsor, America.) Deals mainly with the period before 1789. Written many years ago but still indispensable, especially as a guide to the sources of information.

The most important of the older authorities covering the whole field is Bancroft, G., History of the United States [ 1492- 1789]. Author's last revision 6 vols., N. Y., 1883- 1885. (Cited as Bancroft, United States.) Largely superseded but still useful on many topics. A. Johnson, Editor, Chronicles of America, New Haven, 1918- 1921 has some interesting volumes on the colonial period. (Individual volumes are cited by author and title.)

The following one-volume books cover the colonial era: Andrews, C. M. , The Colonial Period ( Home University Library), N. Y., 1912 (A brief summary by a leading authority); C. Becker, Beginnings of the American People, N. Y., 1915 (Suggestive); Bolton, H. E. and Marshall, T. M. , The Colonization of North America, 1492- 1783, N. Y., 1920 (Brings out the international background of English colonization).

Useful collections of sources are: MacDonald, W., Select Charters Illustrative of American History, 1606-1775, N. Y., 1904, and his Select Documents Illustrative of the History of the United States, N. Y., 1909. These are cited as Select Charters, and Select Documents. (A less complete collection is his Documentary Source-Book of American History, 1606-1913, N. Y., 1916.) Hart, A. B., American History Told by Contemporaries
