Product Description
History is the summary of biographies, and I must appeal to the indulgence of a forty years friendship in submitting these biographical sketches to the attention of so complete a historian of the past, and so acute an historical critic of present times. But if you, for reasons of your own, have selected the vehicle of the anonymous press for the communication of your large and accurate knowledge and the exercise of your vigorous and humorous judgment, it the more becomes those who have long known and followed your literary course, to remind your weekly and daily readers to whom they owe so much solid learning, and so much agreeable illustration. The artistic form of biography, in which the personality of the portrait is made subservient to the skill of the painter, and which from Tacitus to Johnson has charmed mankind, is now classed with romantic fiction.
