From the times of A lexandier to tike sacking of Constantinople by the Turks, a period of fifteen centuries, the Grecian states, being under the influence of foreign councils and the controul of foreign arms, had lost their existence as a nation. But neither did they submit to slavery without a struggle, nor did the power which subverted their government deface, at once, their national character, or destroy, but by degrees, the various effects which flowed from their original genius and political institutions. In what is subjoined, in this edition, to the nanative of Dr Goldsmith, it is the aim of the author to trace, amidst the revolutions of nations, the remains of Greece; to take a summary view of her VOL. I. (Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)
