Overview

Excerpt from Natural History of Animals: Illustrated by Short Stories and Anecdotes; And Intended to Afford a Popular View of the Linnaean System of Arrangement, for the Use of Schools

The following pages were commenced solely in the hope of affording such a simple, and, at the same time, such a systematical introduction to the Linnean System of Zoology, as might induce young persons to an earnest pursuit of the study of Natural History. It has ever been a principal object and endeavour of the author of this little work to extend, as widely as lay in his power, the knowledge of this interesting science; because he knows it to be fraught with the most sublime and important instruction. It not only affords us a clear and comprehensive proof of the existence of an Almighty Being, and supplies us with the fullest and most satisfactory demonstrations of his wisdom and goodness, but also furnishes us with abundant sources of observation, of reflection, and comfort, which are applicable to us under every circumstance, and in every condition of life.

It would not have been difficult to have rendered the present publication more scientific; but this, as the author conceives, would, in a great degree, have prevented it from answering the purpose which he had most at heart.
