Pi ,- JL t-- ,J 8-OS-SO :?-D (9 yPREFACE. A JUSTIFICATION of such a book as this is happily no longer necessary. The value of the old Greek stories as material for the cultivation of the childs imagination and the development of the ethical perceptions has long been admitted; and since the report of the conference on History to the Committee ofT en appointed by theN ational Educational A ssociation, some five years ago, the necessity of basing the formal study of History on some sort of elementary studies in biography and mythology has steadily become more and more generally recognized. These are the ends which this little book is intended to subserve; and that it will subserve them, if intelligently used, is the firm conviction of its authors. The book is not altogether an untried one. (Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)
