Johns Hopkins University Studies
HISTORICAL AND POLITICAL SCIENCE.
H. B. ADAMS, Editor.
The following Studies are either ready for the press or in active preparation. Some of them will be published in the first instance by the University. Others will be reprints from the proceedings of learned societies, magazines, etc., where they appear in some cases under titles slightly different from those here adopted. The idea of this series is to bring together, in numbered monographs, kindred contributions to Historical and Political Science, so that individual efforts may gain strength by combination and become more useful as well as more accessible to students. The Studies will be published at convenient intervals, but not necessarily in separate form or in the following order. A limited edition only of each monographic number will be issued and a price will be set upon each as soon as it appears. A few single copies will be sold upon application and receipt of price. By paying three dollars in advance, subscribers may avoid the inconvenience of small remittances and be assured of receiving, at lower rates, the first twelve numbers, comprising more than twelve Studies and from 300 to 400 pages.
All business communications and questions touching exchanges should be addressed to Publication Agency, (N. Murray,) Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Md.; all scientific communications, to the Editor.

"Si l'on veut lire l'admirable ouvrage de Tacite sur les moeurs des Germains, on verra que c'est d'eux que les Anglois ont tiré Fidée de leur gouvernement politique. Ce beau système a été trouvé dans les bois.”—Montesquieu.
"Das Studium des Gemeindewesens in Amerika, dem Sie sich jetzt widmen, wird sicher sehr fruchtbar werden. In der Gemeinde ist die grosse Mehre der Bürger mehr als im State veranlasst, an öffentlichen Angelegenheiten und gemeinsamen Interessen zu betheiligen. Die Gemeinde ist überdem auch die Vorschule für den Stat. Der Bau der Republiken hat seine Grundlage in der Selbständigkeit der Gemeinden.”—Bluntschli.
"All New England is an aggregate of organized democracies. He that will understand the political character of New England must study the constitution of its towns, its schools, and its militia."—Bancroft.
"If you wish to see Old England, you must go to New England."-Freeman.
