Excerpt from A History of Amherst College: During the Administrations of Its First Five Presidents, From 1821 to 1891 The first edition of this history appeared shortly after the celebration of the Fiftieth Anniversary of the college, and was entitled "History of Amherst College during its First Half Century, 1821-1871." The present new edition has been written and revised with particular reference to two objects, viz: first, the continuation of the history so as to include the close of Dr. Stearns' presidency and the entire administration of President Seelye, thus making it a history of Amherst under its first five presidents; and second, at the same time to abridge the work and make it a smaller and less costly volume, which should be within the means of every graduate. In thus abridging it, I have been under the necessity of omitting the biographical sketches of the founders and benefactors, the trustees and faculty, and the personal contributions of alumni of the college, which were a characteristic feature of the first edition and gave it variety, lifelike reality, and dramatic interest. But whatever it may have thus lost in variety and individuality, we trust it has gained in fulness and completeness as a history of the college. My first thought was to write a separate book on the religious history of the college. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
