*** START OF THIS PROJECT GUTENBERG EBOOK CHARLES I ***Produced by D Alexander and the Online Distributed Proofreading Team at http://www.pgdp.net (This filewas produced from images generously made available by The Internet Archive)Makers of HistoryCharles I.BY JACOB ABBOTTWITH ENGRAVINGSNEW YORK AND LONDONHARPER & BROTHERS PUBLISHERS1901Entered, according to Act of Congress, in the year 1848, byHARPER & BROTHERS,In the Clerk's Office of the Southern District of New York.Copyright, 1876, by JACOB ABBOTT.[Illustration: TOWER OF LONDON.][Illustration: JOHN HAMPDEN.]PREFACE.The history of the life of every individual who has, for any reason, attracted extensively the attention of mankind, has been written in a great variety of ways by a multitude of authors, and persons sometimes wonderwhy we should have so many different accounts of the same thing. The reason is, that each one of theseaccounts is intended for a different set of readers, who read with ideas and purposes widely dissimilar fromeach other. Among the twenty millions of people in the United States, there are perhaps two millions, betweenthe ages of fifteen and twenty-five, who wish to become acquainted, in general, with the leading events in thehistory of the Old World, and of ancient times, but who, coming upon the stage in this land and at this period,have ideas and conceptions so widely different from those of other nations and of other times, that a mererepublication of existing accounts is not what they require. The story must be told expressly for them. Thethings that are to be explained, the points that are to be brought out, the comparative degree of prominence tobe given to the various particulars, will all be different, on account of the difference in the situation, the ideas,and the objects of these new readers, compared with those of the various other classes of readers which formerauthors have had in view. It is for this reason, and with this view, that the present series of historical narrativesis presented to the public. The author, having had some opportunity to become acquainted with the position,the ideas, and the intellectual wants of those whom he addresses, presents the result of his labors to them, withthe hope that it may be found successful in accomplishing its design.CONTENTS.
