by Edward Bulwer LyttonDEDICATION.TO HENRY FYNES CLINTON, ESQ., etc., etc. AUTHOR OF "THE FASTIHELLENICI."My Dear Sir,I am not more sensible of the distinction conferred upon me when youallowed me to inscribe this history with your name, than pleased withan occasion to express my gratitude for the assistance I have derivedthroughout the progress of my labours from that memorable work, inwhich you have upheld the celebrity of English learning, and affordedso imperishable a contribution to our knowledge of the Ancient World.To all who in history look for the true connexion between causes andeffects, chronology is not a dry and mechanical compilation of barrendates, but the explanation of events and the philosophy of facts. Andthe publication of the Fasti Hellenici has thrown upon those times, inwhich an accurate chronological system can best repair what isdeficient, and best elucidate what is obscure in the scantyauthorities bequeathed to us, all the light of a profound anddisciplined intellect, applying the acutest comprehension to therichest erudition, and arriving at its conclusions according to thetrue spirit of inductive reasoning, which proportions the completenessof the final discovery to the caution of the intermediate process. Myobligations to that learning and to those gifts which you haveexhibited to the world are shared by all who, in England or in Europe,study the history or cultivate the literature of Greece. But, in thepatient kindness with which you have permitted me to consult youduring the tedious passage of these volumes through the press--in thecareful advice--in the generous encouragement--which have so oftensmoothed the path and animated the progress--there are obligationspeculiar to myself; and in those obligations there is so much thathonours me, that, were I to enlarge upon them more, the world mightmistake an acknowledgment for a boast.With the highest consideration and esteem,Believe me, my dear sir,Most sincerely and gratefully yours,EDWARD LYTTON BULWERLondon, March, 1837.ADVERTISEMENT.
