Excerpt from Elements of Natural Philosophy: For the Use of Schools and Academies
This book is an abridgement of the "Natural Philosophy" by the same authors, with such changes as were required to adapt it to younger pupils. As the larger book is in no sense a revision of the "Natural Philosophy" of the Cambridge Course of Physics, but an entirely new work, differing from its predecessor both in matter and in method of presentation, so this book is equally independent of the earlier "Handbook of Natural Philosophy."
Two kinds of type have been used, as in the larger book, with a view to adapting it to the wants of different schools. The matter in the larger type forms a brief and easy course, complete in itself and sufficient for classes that can spend only a single school term in the study. The portions in smaller type will enable teachers to extend this course more or less, according to their personal tastes or the ability of their pupils. Those who have time for the whole book may find the division convenient in reviews and examinations, and also in fixing the minimum to be required of pupils who have little taste or aptitude for physics.
