"In these volumes, Mr. Bigland exhibits ft very pleasing picture of tlie past and the present state of mankind, of their progress in civilization and arts, with portions of their topographical, their civil and military history, so judiciously combined, as to constitute u very edifying and amusing work. It may be perused with great advantage by juvenile students who wish for a general view of the present and the past state of man in all parts of the world, before they enter on the detailed investigation of particular portions of the globe; nor will it be unacceptable to those who are more advanced in life, and w ho wish to renew their former recollections, and to retrace the historical path which they have before trod."—Critical Revieiv.
