Popular Histories of the Great Nations - A Popular History of Greece: From the Earliest Period to the Incorporation with the Roman Empire, By D. Rose.
Edited by H. W. Dulcken, PhD.
Commencing with a general view of Greece in the earliest times, giving the topographical details of the aspect of the country generally, with its limits and outlines, its rivers, mountain ranges and landmarks, the narrative proceeds to deal with those old, half-prehistoric legends of the mythical period, in which the deeds of heroes and founders of states are dimly shadowed forth. Thence through the Trojan war the history passes to the region of authentic narrative; comprising the story of the various fortunes and deeds of Sparta and Athens, and the other states of Greece, with their rise, progress, foreign and intestine struggles, their decay and fall.
