Overview

Excerpt from Introduction to the Study of Fossil Organic Remains: Especially Those Found in the British Strata

The following pages arc dedicated to the service of those Admirers of Fossils who have not yet entered into a strict examination of the distinctive characters of these interesting substances.

An attempt is made, in this slight But comprehensive sketch, to show the difference of forms and structure in the numerous organised beings with which the earth was peopled before the creation of man; to mark the several circumstances in which they agreed with, or differed from, the inhabitants of the present world; and to point out, from the strata in which they exist, the order in which they probably were formed. The limits of this publication will not always allow a full statement of those minute distinctions which are the objects of research of the more advanced enquirer; but sufficient, it is hoped, will be introduced to enable the student to detect the more decided and more important characters of these substances, and to place them under their appropriate genera.
