DONALD OGDEN STEWART

A PARODY
OUTLINE OF HISTORY

Wherein may be found a curiously irreverent treatment of
AMERICAN HISTORICAL EVENTS
Imagining them as they would be narrated
by American's most characteristic
contemporary authors

To
GILBERT HOLLAND STEWART, Jr.

Preface

Mr. H. G. Wells, in his "Outline of History," was of necessity forced
to omit the narration of many of the chief events in the history
of these United States.  Such omissions I have in this brief
volume endeavored to supply.  And as American history can
possibly best be written by Americans and as we have among us no
H. G. Wells, I have imagined an American history as written
conjointly by a group of our most characteristic literary figures.

Apologies are due the various authors whose style and, more
particularly, whose Weltanschauung I have here attempted to
reproduce; thanks are due The Bookman for permission to reprint
