Books upon almost every other subject have
been circulated among the people, except those
relating to the very iutertstmg and important
one or Natural History. The books which hose
heretofore been published on this subject, have
been adapted, to mere children, or to those
who made it n thorough study. Hence, very
few or the millions of readers in this country
have, within their reach, anything satisfactory
upon this subject. This indicates a great and
au obvious want, as no subject is mere intense
ly interesting, and none more improving, than
that of the living beings that people the globe.
This want we ore confident we telly meet, in
the work we here otter to the public.
