A monument of industrious Victorian scholarship

'Although as biased as Macaulay's History of England and less scholarly than Mommsen's Roman History, Grote's History of Greece can be bracketed with these two works. Like them, it was received with universal acclamation, was translated into French and German, shaped the European conception of its subject-matter throughout the nineteenth century, and still merits respect as a monument of industrious Victorian scholarship' (Printing and the Mind of Man 321).
