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 monthly 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 applica tion 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 papers and from 300 to 400 pages.
Scientific communications should be addressed to the EDITOR ; business matters, subscriptions, questions touching exchanges, etc., to the PUBLICATION AGENCY (N. MURRAY), JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY, BALTIMORE, MARYLAND.
Subscriptions will also be received, or single copies furnished, by G. P. PUTNAM'S SONS, NEW YORK; SOULE & BUGBEE, Boston; ROBERT CLARKE & Co., CINCINNATI; JAMES ANGLIM & Co., WASHINGTON; TRÜBNER & Co., LONDON.

"It is not creditable to us as an educated people that while our students are well acquainted with the state machinery of Athens and Rome, they should be ignorant of the corresponding institutions of our own forefathers: institutions that possess a living interest for every nation that realises its identity, and have exercised on the well-being of the civilised world an influence not inferior certainly to that of the Classical nations."- Stubbs, Select Charters.
