A History Of All Nations From The Earliest Times (1905) by Wright, John Henry (1852–1908)

ℹ️ "This general "History of All Nations" consists, accordingly, of twenty-four volumes : five on Antiquity, five on the Middle Ages, ten on the Modern History of the Old World, and three on the Two Americas, with a comprehensive Index volume to the whole.

The Editor entertains the hope that the result of this united labor, to which some of the foremost historical writers of the Old and New Worlds have contributed, will furnish what has hitherto been lacking in English, a trustworthy account, at once comprehensive and detailed, of the history of mankind from the earliest times to the present day, reflecting the latest investigations and presented in a form to excite the interest of all intelligent readers."

The Great Events By Famous Historians (1905–1919) edited by Johnson, Rossiter (1840–1931) Horne, Charles Francis (1870–1942) & Rudd, John (????–????)

ℹ️ "THE GREAT EVENTS BY FAMOUS HISTORIANS is the answer to a problem which has long been agitating the learned world. How shall real history, the ablest and profoundest work of the greatest historians, be rescued from its present oblivion on the dusty shelves of scholars, and made welcome to the homes of the people?

THE NATIONAL ALUMNI, an association of college men, having given this question long and earnest discussion among themselves, sought finally the views of a carefully elaborated list of authorities throughout America and Europe. They consulted the foremost living historians and professors of history, successful writers in other fields, statesmen, university and college presidents, and prominent business men. From this widely gathered consensus of opinions, after much comparison and sifting of ideas, was evolved the following practical, and it would seem incontrovertible, series of plain facts. And these all pointed toward "THE GREAT EVENTS"."

The Story Of The Greatest Nations (1913–1914) by Ellis, Edward Sylvester (1840–1916) & Horne, Charles Francis (1870–1942)

ℹ️"TO PRESENT the "Story" of history in so simple a form that every one, young and old, may understand and also enjoy it, is no easy matter. Yet the story is of profound importance for us all to know. Our every action in the present is formed upon our knowledge of the past. Hence, the fuller our understanding of that Past, which is History, the wiser will be our actions in the Present, and the keener our judgments of the Future.

This "Story of the Past" has moments of intensest interest, situations more pathetic than those of our most brilliant novels, climaxes more dramatic than those of our strongest plays, scenes more poetic than any of our grandest poems. How are these priceless jewels to be rescued from the more or less tedious and uninteresting details that surround them ? How are you, reader, to gather the wheat without the chaff? How are you to learn of the parts that are "worth while" to you, of the knowledge which you will treasure with delight — without a weary plodding through all the dry and unnecessary dust of ages ?

The present work is the effort of the authors and the publisher to answer that question.

The story begins with a general history of the most ancient nations, then traces in succession the rise and fall of each great country which in its turn dominated the world. The narrative thus passes from ancient nations to those of the present, wherein the system of "balancing" powers has superseded the old-time struggle for absolute dominion, and each nation seems fairly content to rule its own portion of earth without assuming responsibility for all the rest. Among these surviving states of our own day the story tells of all which hold or ever have held any special prominence in history. Thus the whole panorama of the world is made to pass in review before the reader, with the importance of every step made clear to him in its relation to the whole, and yet with each country presented separately, its story told as a unit, so that each nation may be appreciated by itself, with all its struggles and its triumphs. The record of every one of these countries is worth knowing for its own lesson. Every land has had its own romance. Each has had a glory in its past; each has a dream of its future." (Preface)

The Book Of History (1915–1921) by Various

ℹ️ "It is a commonplace to say of a great work that it is unique, and there would at first sight seem to be peculiar presumption in making such a claim for a History of the World. It may be claimed, however, without any fear of contradiction, that this work has no rival in the English language.

There have been histories of the" world before ; there are available in large numbers histories of all countries well worthy of attention ; but there is not, and it may be doubted if there has ever been attempted before, a scientific World-History. This work is, as far as it can possibly be in the present state of knowledge, a universal history of the universe.

That is a far reaching claim to make, but a mere glance through the names of those whose services have been enlisted for the work will make its basis clear. The contributors include some of the foremost students of science. Many men of eminence whose names do not usually come into historical works will be found here. Their function may be described as holding the Lamp of Science up to History. It is for these authorities to read the story of the earth and to tell the plain man what they read there, as Turner read the sunset and painted what he saw." (Editorial Introduction)
