Benjamin Franklin This is a biography of American Patriots, the name of Benjamin Franklin who was great struggle, in which he took so conspicuous a part, which secured the Independence of the United States.
John Stevens Cabot Abbott It Opens to the reader scenes in the lives of the lowly, and a state of semi-civilization, of which but few of them can have the faintest idea. It has not been my object, in this narrative, to defend Colonel Crockett or to condemn him, but to present his.
John Stevens Cabot Abbott Napoleon is a man who continues to fascinate us. Military genius, dictator (benevolent or otherwise), administrator, law-giver — he was all of these. He was believed to be short in stature — 'The Little Corporal' — but seemed to be one of those rare individuals who could fill a room with his presence. (He has been reported in various works as being five-feet, five-inches tall, and five-feet, seven-inches tall — not significantly different from the average height of men in his time.) He could be charming, cruel, unreasonable, generous, insightful and periodically incompetent. He solidified the aspirations of the French Revolution and then retracted some of the freedoms that had been gained from it. He fought the English but admired them. He sought to create an empire in Europe and North America, and then gave away 800,000 square miles of it for four cents an acre to Thomas Jefferson.

John Stevens Cabot Abbott This is a detailed biography of the life and adventures of Daniel Boone. His accomplishments are brushed over in history classes these days and not given the recognition they deserve. This biography clearly paints a picture of the benevolent person of Daniel Boone as well as the achievements he made in furthering European settlement in America.
John Stevens Cabot Abbott It is a remarkable tribute to the enduring power of the genius of Velazquez, that while he exercised but little influence over the minds of his contemporaries, he profoundly affected the painters of modern times, particularly in France and throughout Europe. Among those whose works show clearly the impress of his genius may be mentioned Corot, Millet, Whistler and Sargent, most particularly the last named, whose methods as a portrait painter must inevitably recall the works of the master.
John Stevens Cabot Abbott This book tells the path which Russia has trod from earliest infancy to the present hour. The career of this empire has been so wild and wonderful that the historian can have no occasion to call in the aid of fancy for the embellishment of his narrative.

John Stevens Cabot Abbott The author devoted his life to writing books with children and young people in mind. In his own words, "This book is intended not for entertainment, but for solid instruction. I have endeavoured, however, to present instruction in an attractive form to gain the attention of the young. Though the book is particularly intended for children, or rather for young persons, it is hoped that it will aid parents in their efforts for moral and religious instruction". The subjects covered are: responsibility, deception, obedience, religious truth, piety & traits of character. The book is filled with examples drawn from real life that will speak directly to the heart of the child who cares for his never-dying soul.
John Stevens Cabot Abbott Maria Antoinette, Madame Roland, and Josephine are the three most prominent heroines of the French Revolution. The history of their lives necessarily records all the most interesting events of that most fearful tragedy which man has ever enacted. Maria Antoinette beheld the morning dawn of the Revolution; its lurid mid-day sun glared upon Madame Roland; and Josephine beheld the portentous phenomenon fade away. Each of these heroines displayed traits of character worthy of all imitation. No one can read the history of their lives without being ennobled by the contemplation of the fortitude and grandeur of spirit they evinced.

John Stevens Cabot Abbott This work analyzes the life and achievements of Napoleon in the most exhilarating manner. He is not seen through the eyes of a scholar or historian but a common man who is highly amazed and flabbergasted at his achievements and conquests. The work portrays Napoleon as a hero highlighting his personal and political triumphs.
John Stevens Cabot Abbott The studies of the author of this work, for the last ten years, in writing the "History of Napoleon Bonaparte", and "The French Revolution of 1789", have necessarily made him quite familiar with the monarchies of Europe. He has met with so much that was strange and romantic in their career, that he has been interested to undertake, as it were, a biography of the Monarchies of Continental Europe—their birth, education, exploits, progress and present condition. He has commenced with Austria.
John Stevens Cabot Abbott Leest verrassend makkelijk weg voor een boek uit 1875. Abbott maakt zich af en toe schuldig aan het ophemelen van zijn onderwerp (onverschrokken, visionair, waardig etc etc) maar sluit ook zijn ogen niet voor de wreedheden van de Europese 'ontdekkers' tegenover de oorspronkelijke bewoners van de Caraïben. Velt uiteindelijk het wat obligate oordeel dat we Columbus 'in zijn tijdgeest' en in het licht van de toen heersende opvattingen moeten zien.
