by Edwin James Brady - G. Robertson and Co.
The body of the material for Australia Unlimited has not been gathered from printed pages, but collected carefully. State by State, mile by mile, year after year, from the wide circle of a continent -- a continent of potentialities still unrealized.

You don't have to be a trained historian to be interested in and research local history; all you need is an interest, an inquiring mind, an ability to keep your notes in an order where you can retrieve information quickly, and perseverance.
by C. Langlois, C. Seignobos - Henry Holt and company
This is not a summary of universal history for the use of beginners. The book is intended, not as a summary of ascertained facts or a system of general ideas on universal history, but as an essay on the method of the historical sciences.
