"This book was first written ... for the degree of doctor of philosophy at Yale university, has two purposes: to make available a writing of Thomas Carlyle which has so far escaped publication ... and secondly, to afford students of Carlyle a glimpse into the Scotman's mind as he was at work on twelve of the battles of which accounts appear in his History of Friedrich II. of Prussia, called Frederick the Great."--Pref.

"The manuscript of the 'Journey to Germany' was acquired by the Yale university library in 1932."--p. xii.
