Description : Excerpt from An American Biographical and Historical Dictionary The following work presents itself to the public with no claims to attention, but such as are founded upon the interest, which may be felt in the lives of Americans. Finding himself a few years ago in a literary retirement, with no important duties, which pressed immediately upon him, the author conceived the plan of this dictionary. He was desirous of bringing to the citizens of the United States more information, than was generally possessed, respecting the illustrious men of former times, the benefactors and ornaments of this country, who have passed away. He persuaded himself, that if he could collect the fragments of biography, which were buried in the mass of American history, or scattered amidst a multitude of tracts of various kinds, and could fashion these materials into a regular form, so as to place before the eye our great and good men, if not in their full dimensions, yet in their true shape, he should render an acceptable service to his countrymen. This work with no little labor he has now completed; and the inexperienced artist, in his first essay, can hope only, that his design will be commended. He wishes chiefly, that as the images of departed excellence are surveyed, the spirit, which animated them, may be caught by the beholder. As an apology however for the deficiences and errors of various kinds, which may be found in the work, a full exposition of his plan, and some representation of the difficulty of executing it seem to be necessary.

Description : Excerpt from A New American Biographical Dictionary, or Remembrancer of the Departed Heroes and Statesmen of America: Confined Exclusively to Those Who Signalized Themselves in Either Capacity, in the Revolutionary War Which Obtained the Independence of Their Country No work of the kind has hitherto been pub lished, and the editor has been particularly careful to select, with the strictest impartia lity, a sketch of the lives and characters of those departed heroes and statesmen, without respect to country or station, who signalized themselves, in either capacity, in the revolu tionary war, which obtained the independence of our country. There are many, no doubt, who highly distinguished themselves, whose names have not been mentioned, through ne gleet of their friends, notwithstanding repeat ed solicitations from the editor. However, it is presumed, that if a second edition should appear they will not be again neglected. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Description : The Dictionary of Early American Philosophers, which contains over 400 entries by nearly 300 authors, provides an account of philosophical thought in the United States and Canada between 1600 and 1860. The label of "philosopher" has been broadly applied in this Dictionary to intellectuals who have made philosophical contributions regardless of academic career or professional title. Most figures were not academic philosophers, as few such positions existed then, but they did work on philosophical issues and explored philosophical questions involved in such fields as pedagogy, rhetoric, the arts, history, politics, economics, sociology, psychology, medicine, anthropology, religion, metaphysics, and the natural sciences. Each entry begins with biographical and career information, and continues with a discussion of the subject's writings, teaching, and thought. A cross-referencing system refers the reader to other entries. The concluding bibliography lists significant publications by the subject, posthumous editions and collected works, and further reading about the subject.
