THE HISTORY OF COLONIZATION

From the Earliest Times to the Present Day

By HENRY C. MORRIS
Formerly United States Consul at Ghent, Belgium

Two volumes Demy Svo $4.00 "Henry C. Morris, a Chicago lawyer, who was the consul of the United States at Ghent, Belgium, during Cleveland's second administration, has made a valuable contribution toward the intelligent discussion of current topics in 'The History of Colonization.' The book is inclusive and may almost be said to run from prehistoric times to that somewhat nebulous future when Great Britain will have brought the South African republics under her flag. It is distinguished throughout by the strictest adherence to the modern form of history-making. marshalling of such facts it is fairly encyclopædic, and the student and statesman may turn to its pages with confidence. Nothing before the reading public to-day contains a tithe of the information to be found here compacted and arranged. Footnotes throughout the work add to its value, and the apparatus of indexes and a bibliography at the end greatly facilitate the use of the book." - The Chicago Tribune.
