Excerpt from Transactions of the Royal Society of Literature, Vol. 26: Of the United Kingdom "History is manufactured in the nursery," Renan is reported to have exclaimed in an outburst of that caustic bonhomie with which we are familiar. Beneath this airy sarcasm lies a profound truth. Our childhoods prejudices, its sympathies or antipathies, are of all the most rooted and unassailable. Ingratitude stops short at the authors of our first delights, forgiveness at the objects of our childish terror. Which of us but yet remembers those sinister figures, scourges of God and man, as portrayed by the 'Royal Reader' of our first history lessons? At the mere thought of the bloody hecatombs of block and pile which their fantastic wickedness cost the world even to-day an involuntary shudder, a muttered curse, will escape us. First impressions were derived from the ready imagination of the family governess and the unexceptionable criticism of Mrs. Markham and Little Arthur.
