A Manual of Ancient History
by A. H. L. Heeren
Publisher: D. A. Talboys 1833
Number of pages: 486
The author spent the greater portion of his life in lecturing upon the subjects of ancient history. A list of the original sources is placed at the head of each section. The work possesses the merit of combining the convenience of the Manuals with the synchronistic method of instruction; as the geography, chronology, and biography of the countries and states of the ancient world are brought at once under the eye of the reader.
