"Wherein the Science is deduced from its first principles, and its usefulness explained and illustrated, by a table of remarkable æreas and events from the creation to the present time: together with annals of the principal empires and kingdoms, ancient and modern, arranged in chronological order, under separate heads." "Chronology is a science which takes account of time, enables us to trace out distinctly the dependence of events, and to distinguish them into those periods and divisions that shall lay the whole chain of past transactions, in a just and orderly manner before us."
