PREFACE

I FOUND that "The Story of the Persian War," if it was to be fully told, would require all the space at my command. I have not, therefore, gone beyond this subject, and have given to this book the title which best describes its contents. There are yet "Stories of the West" to be found in Herodotus, which I may have, I hope, and opportunity of giving to the public.

The illustrations of this volume are taken from various sculptures and vases. The artist has sought to reproduce in them the coloring of a certain small class of Greek pottery, examples of which may be seen in the British Museum.

ALFRED CHURCH.   

HADLEY GREEN,
     Oct. 21, 1881.
