Notes Text in French Rollin the important French historian, according to Voltaire \\\\\\\"one of the first French authors who wrote a good style in prose\\\\\\\". His works were written during his retirement. He was nearly sixty when he began the \\\\\\\"Traité des Etudes\\\\\\\", sixty-seven when he undertook his \\\\\\\"Histoire Ancienne\\\\\\\", seventy-seven when he became engaged on his \\\\\\\"Histoire Romaine\\\\\\\", which death prevented him from finishing. The \\\\\\\"Histoire Romaine\\\\\\\", of which he was able to finish only five volumes out of the nine composing the work. The last part is a continuation of Rollin\\\\\\\'s history, written by his follower Crevier.
