Series Note: "The plan of this Series is to present, in graphic narratives, prepared by competent historians, the stories of different nations that have attained prominence in history. While it has not proved practicable to issue the different volumes in the their chronological order, their subjects have been planned to cover consecutive or connecting periods, so that the set when completed will present in one comprehensive narrative the epoch-making events in the great Story of the Nations.

The Times has spoken of it as "that useful series,' The Spectator has called it "an excellent series"; while The Pall Mall Gazette says "it is likely to be found indispensible in every school library."

Format: "Crown 8vo [octavo], illustrated, and furnished with Maps and Indexes, price 5s. each."
