This series of lectures, as printed, were taken in shorthand in the lecture room, and have had no other rearrangement than the cutting out of some repetitions of thought and a few word corrections. Therefore, it must be expected that much of the language is better fitted for the lecture room than for the printed page. In the course of the lectures class illustrations were supplied, which, with much of the descriptive matter per taining to them, will be missed from the pages as printed, which will be a serious loss to the reader through much of the matter presented, particularly so if he has not been present at the lectures.
