Overview

"A two-fold purpose has been kept in view during the preparation of these volumes-on the one-hand, to refresh the memories and, if possible, to enlarge the knowledge, of readers who have already visited Europe; on the other, to provide something in the nature of a substitute for those who have not yet done so, and to inspire them with new and stronger ambitions to make the trip." Francis Whiting Halsey (1851-1919) was an American journalist and historian. He was assistant editor of the Binghamton Times (1873-1875), a member of the editorial staff of the New York Tribune (1875-1880), and in 1880 joined the staff of the New York Times as foreign editor and writer of book reviews. He was literary editor of The Times, and established the Times Saturday Review of Books and Art in 1896. He also issued anonymously, Virginia Isabel Forbes, a memoir of his wife, printed privately in 1900. His works include: Two Months Abroad (1878), The Old New York Frontier (1901), The Pioneers of Unadilla Village (1902), The World's Famous Orations (1906) and The Best of the World's Classics (10 volumes) (with Henry Cabot Lodge) (1909).
