Overview

Excerpt from A First Lesson in Natural History

This little book, long out of print, is now offered by us to teachers as one of our "Science Guides," because it fits very appropriately into the series. With admirable clearness and brevity, it gives in narrative form for young children a general history of Hydroids, Corals, and Echinoderms; thus rendering unnecessary a part of the work we had proposed to ourselves in connection with our late lectures on this subject. It will be found, we think, of great service where this kind of teaching is needed, and has saved us much trouble and expense in the preparation of the supplementary guide which is to follow.

For the use of the wood-cuts we are indebted to Mr. Alexander Agassiz. It is one of many favors received at the hands of the family of the late Professor Agassiz, as well as from others; all of which it will be a pleasant duty to acknowledge at some future time.
