"Illustrated with many photogravures, maps, charts, facsimiles, etc." According to the Columbia Encyclopedia, Fiske (1842-1901) was a lawyer who soon turned to writing. The first part of his life was given to popularizing (Herbert) Spencerian evolution, but he also achieved popularity as a lecturer on history, spending the latter part of his life writing on this subject. His books were popular accounts based largely on secondary authorities and noted for their easy, lucid, and dramatic style. ; 8vo
