Such a work the one now offered to the public was designed to be.

The authors mainly consulted and quoted are, Mrs. Strickland, Miss. Benger, Mignet, McCrie, and Hume. Some of these historians, in their unqualified and extravagant admiration of the Queen of Scots, apologize for every fault, and illustrate glowingly every virtue. Others lean to the defence of Elizabeth, at the expense of Marrys cause.Both extremes have been avoided in purpose, if not in fact, in this biography. Less pure and loving than Josephine, Mary Stuart was more beautiful, and tassed on more tempestuous seas- a weary captive, she laid at length her crowned head on the executioners block, affording an historical record, and a moral lesson, none can contemplate without benefit to the in tellect and to the heart.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
