Excerpt from Beacon Lights of History: The Old Pagan Civilizations

IN this volume I have not aimed at original investi gation. No one man could hope, on such a variety of subjects, to present exhaustive treatises. It would be impossible, to the satisfaction of critics, to com press in six hundred pages the ancient history of the world. But I have done the best I could to seize on the important and salient points in the religion, the philosophy, the laws, the arts, the science, the litera ture, and the social life of the cultivated nations of antiquity. John lord. Smut-oim, Comm, October, 1888.
