Biographical Sketches of Preeminant Americans, with One hundred and Twenty Photogravure Portraits, Volume I.
The title of this work is indicative of its scope and design. The author has attempted to lay before the reader, in as concise a form as possible, the important facts in the lives of those men whose genius and enterprise have aided, in an especial manner, in the upbuilding of this great nation, or who have exercised a powerful influence over the minds and hearts of their fellow-countrymen.
The sketches are biographical, and in no sense critical, the element of criticism having been avoided, not only out of regard to the limits of space, but also from the feeling that the author’s opinions would not be likely to be of interest to the great public, into whose hands it is confidently hoped that the work will find its way, and who are themselves amply qualified to judge of the merits or demerits of the great men of the past and present.
