THE AMERICAN SOCIETY

EXTENSION OF UNIVERSITY TEACHING,

SYLLABUS

OF A

COURSE OF SIX LECTURES

ON

REPRESENTATIVE AMERICANS.

BY

EDWARD T. DEVINE, Ph.D.

STAFF LECTURER.

Nothing of Europe here,

Or, then, of Europe fronting mornward still,
Ere any names of Serf and Peer

Could Nature's equal scheme deface,
And thwart her genial will.

- From Lowell's Commemoration Ode.

No, 1.

Price, 10 Cents.

Copyright, 1895, by
The American Society for the Extension of University Teaching,

III South Fifteenth Street, Philadelphia.

BOOKS.

Every one should if possible do some reading in connection with the lectures. Those who prefer to read only one book for the entire course are advised to read the brilliant and fascinating volume “ The United States : An outline of Political History,” by Goldwin Smith (Macmillan, price, $2.00). This work is by no means accurate at all points, but it presents an unconventional and often novel view of the prominent figures of American history and it will serve as well as any other to give the general setting.

More satisfactory to the student as a manual would be Fiske's “ History of the United States” (Houghton, Mifflin & Co., price, $1.00).

For those who can read one small volume in connection with each lecture, there is the American Statesmen Series, which contains life of all except John Brown (Houghton: each vol. $1.25; Lincoln, 2 vols.). For Franklin it would be as well to substitute McMaster's “ Franklin " in the American Men of Letters Series ($1.25). The best life of Franklin and of Jackson are those of Parton (Houghton : Franklin, 2 vols., $5.00; Jackson, 3 vols., $7.50); of Patrick Henry, is that of William Wirt Henry (Scribner's, price, $12.00); of Lincoln, that of Nicolay and Hay (Century, $30.00); of John Brown, that of Sanborn (Roberts, $1.50). For the latter may be substituted the essay by von Holst (Cupples & Hurd, $1.25). The prices given above are the publisher's retail prices. Books may usually be bought in quantities or by special arrangement at a discount of from ten to twenty-five per cent.

For students it is more important to read something of the works of the men discussed than to read their biographies. The following is suggested :

Franklin: Autobiography; such shorter sketches as are accessible, e.g., Poor Richard's Almanac and other papers in Riverside Literature Series (Houghton, 15 cents).

Hamilton : The Federalist (Putnam's, $2.00); First Report on Public Credit; Report on Manufactures. Lincoln: Addresses, Letters and State Papers (Century, 2 vols., $10.00).
