Excerpt from The Battle of the Books in Its Historical Setting The little book here presented is the outgrowth of a design to trace through the writings of certain formative thinkers the development of a critical attitude toward classical authors in the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. At first interested in the more formal side of her topic, the writer became increasingly impressed with the contrasting attitudes of spirit manifested by attackers and defenders of ancient authority. This differing quality of spirit became at length the absorbing theme of her study, and gave to her conclusions their final form. The writer wishes to express her abiding gratitude to Professor James Harvey Robinson, through whose inspiration and encouragement the work has alone been made possible. She feels deep obligation also to Professor William A. Dunning of Columbia University, whose kindly interest and scholarly criticism of her manuscript were of invaluable assistance. Her thanks are likewise due to President George Samler Davis of Hunter College, whose high devotion to cultural ideals has opened the way for her undertaking.
