Aunt Charlotte's Stories of Greek History
by Charlotte Mary Yonge
Publisher: Marcus Ward & co.
In this little book the attempt has been to trace Greek History so as to be intelligible to young children. In fact, it will generally be found that classical history is remembered at an earlier age than modern history, probably because the events are simple, and there was something childlike in the nature of all the ancient Greeks.
