Excerpt from A Manual of Zoology John Hunter had lived and laboured: his vast ideas, his bril liant discoveries, his views, which seem more like inspirations than the natural result of an industry unsurpassed, lay buried in the hall of a corporate body with whom, as a surgeon, he was accidentally associated: but he had laboured in vain. His views he placed before the world in the form of a museum, to which none of the labours of men's hands can be compared - unless it be, and these no doubt excel, the handiwork of those who carved the Medicean Venus and the Belvidere Apollo. For never, I believe, at any period Of its history, was Zoology in a lower condition in Britain than that in which I found it when, returning from France, in the summer of 1825, I submitted to a small but select class an outline of those great views which France and Germany had taught me, and which I have continued to meditate and reflect on to the present day. Since that period the educa tional institutions of the country have become somewhat multiplied, perhaps improved. The pressure of continental Opinion has told on Britain, and ere long it is by no means improbable the sciences of simple observation may be deemed, if not equal in importance to those great branches of human knowledge wrapped up in the study of numbers and of lite rature, at least esteemed useful, practically calculated to expand the intellect - the first Object of all education.

ÊLetÊus commence our researches into curious Zoology with the noblest of created beings, Man; and, if we may believe Darwin, he must have gone through many phases, and gradual mutations, before he arrived at his present proud position of Master and Conqueror of the World. This philosopher does not assign a high place in the animal creation to proud manÕs protogenitor, and we ought almost to feel thankful to him for not going further back. He begins with man as an Ascidian, which is the lowest form of anything of a vertebrate character, with which we are acquainted; and he says thus, in his ÒDescent ofÊManÓ:Ñ ÒThe most ancient progenitors in the kingdom of the Vertebrata, at which we are able to obtain an obscure glance, apparently consisted of a group of marine animals, resembling the larv¾ of existing Ascidians. These animals probably gave rise to a group of fishes, as lowly organised as the lancelet; and from these the Ganoids, and other fishes like the Lepidosiren, must have been developed. From such fish a very small advance would carry us on to the amphibians. We see that birds and reptiles were once intimately connected together; andÊthe Monotremata now, in a slight degree, connect mammals with reptiles. But no one can, at present, say by what line of descent the three higher, and related classesÑnamely, mammals, birds, and reptiles, were derived from either of the two lower vertebrate classes, namely, amphibians, and fishes. In the class of mammals the steps are not difficult to conceive which led from the ancient Monotremata to the ancient Marsupials; and from these to the early progenitors of the placental mammals. We may thus ascend to the Lemurid¾; and the interval is not wide from these to the Simiad¾. The Simiad¾ then branched off into two great stems, the New World, and Old World monkeys; and from the latter, at a remote period, Man, the wonder and glory of the Universe, proceeded.Ó

Excerpt from Lessons on Familiar Philippine Animals, Vol. 1: Part One Of first importance is to have the specimen in each case, and where not possible to obtain it I believe the lesson might better be omitted. An effort has been made to use only such forms as are general throughout the Archipelago, and if not in the vicinity the specimen can usually be found in a neighboring town. Departing from custom I have begun with the higher forms of life, primarily, because few schools are supplied with the apparatus necessary to work among the simpler life forms, so what is done must be of a nature only to require the unaided eye. Again, interest must be awakened, and that will not come if the beginning work is on matter which is beyond the comprehension of the pupil.

Excerpt from The Zoologist, 1900, Vol. 4: A Monthly Journal of Natural History Of the contributors to our first number probably J. W. Douglas is now the only survivor. The aims and scope of the publication are precisely the same as in 1843 - bionomic primarily. In philosophy there is great change, but no new creed. It is undoubtedly the case that a naturalist may exist without being an evolutionist it is equally true that evolutionists can be found who are neither Lamarckians nor Darwinists and it is certain that Darwinists are to be found in plenty who are quite outside the school of neo-darwinism, and who have no desire to risk wrecking a great conception on speculative side issues. Hence the zoologist' welcomes all phases of thought, but stipulates for facts rather than theories, argument more than advocacy. All contributors may at least speculate on what our Journal may be made for the cause of Zoology during the next century. The summing up will then be in other hands.

Excerpt from An Introduction to Zoology: With Directions for Practical Work (Invertebrates) IT is desirable, perhaps, to give some reason for adding another book on Natural History to the many that already exist, and to indicate in what way the book is intended to be used. The danger of the multiplication of small text - books is that they may conceivably be used in place of that firsthand investigation which must form the basis of all scientific work nevertheless, so long as the time allotted to Natural History is as limited as it is in the ordinary curriculum of school and college in this country, it is necessary to use to the best advantage the hours which teacher and pupils spend together, and I suggest that this time can at first be most profitably spent in practical work, during which the teacher directs and supplements the observations of the class, leading his pupils to reason about the facts they observe, and to record them by means of clear accurate drawings with brief explanatory notes.

Excerpt from The Anthropological Review, Vol. 4 On the first appearance of his Principles of Geology, Sir Charles (then Mr.) Lyell was accused by some reviewers of putting the cart before the horse - Of discussing the respective merits of an unimpaired and uniform series of changes, and a succession of catastrophes diminishing in intensity, before proceeding to a statement of facts showing the adequacy of existing causes to account for ancient geological phenomena. But the order adopted by Lyell was the best calculated to prepare the mind of the reader not only to appreciate, but to take an interest in, the mass of circumstantial evi dances, or verse cause, contained in that justly celebrated work.

Excerpt from The Fourth Reader of the School and Family Series Teachers will observe that, while we have aimed to make the several di visions, or Parts, in this Reader as instructive as possible, we have not lost sight of the importance of making them interesting also; and to this end we have introduced great variety in matter and manner, and illustra tions which are valuable lessons in themselves. For the sake of that regular gradation which is highly essential in School Readers, and to avoid introducing too much on any one subject in the same book, we have made two divisions each of Human Physiology, Botany, and Natural Philosophy, and have given only the first and easier portion Of each subject in the present Reader. The second divisions will be contained in the Fifth Reader. Zoology is here continued in the division entitled Ornithology, or Birds. For the beautiful illustrations in this part we are indebted to the same art ist (parsons) to whom we expressed our obligations for the admirable draw ings Of animals in the Third Reader. In Part IV., Miscellaneous, we have given a few old standard pieces, because they are unsurpassed in merit, will be new to every succeeding generation, and have no superiors as reading exercises. Part VI, entitled Sketches from Sacred History, partially develops the plan which will be pursued in the Historical divisions of the Fifth, Sixth, and Seventh Readers. I am indebted for valuable aid in the departments of Botany and Natu ral Philosophy to Professor N. B. Webster, of Virginia, by whom portions Of those divisions and some original and very happy illustrations of philo sophical principles were furnished.
