This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1850 edition. Excerpt: ... APPENDIX. Section I.--Origin, Civilization, Extinction of the Bark Maces of Men. In the history of the Jewish, Coptic, and Gipsy races, the great question of the extinction of race has been considered. These races, placed by theorists with the so-called Caucasian race, and at the head of the Caucasian family, I consider as belonging to the dark races of men. They are African and Asiatic, not European. The purest of the Jewish race is a dark tawny, yellow-coloured person, with jet-black hair and eyes seemingly coloured: there is no mistaking the race when pure: it is Egyptian--that is, African. The same remarks apply to the gipsy, who is of Asiatic origin. A series of incorrect observations, commencing with Blumenbach, but not terminating with Prichard, led to errors which no doubt will hold their ground for centuries. For this reason I have, in a preceding lecture, reviewed the history of these three races, the Copt, the Gipsy, and the Jew, and in so doing, briefly examined the question of the extinction of race, as applicable to all. Of the destiny of the dark races it is not my intention to say much. Originating from the same stock with their fellow men of all colours; formed into distinct groups by the laws of development, obeying geological aeras; these groups or natural families preserve, as in the case of all otber animals, their specific forms and mental qualities, for at least a term of years which history does not yet enable us to determine, but of sufficient duration to convey to the limited mind of man the idea of eternal. Thus it Was that Cuvier, assuming the brief span of man's written history, and of man's pictorial history, as shown on the monuments of Egypt, to be the beginning and end of man's history, leaped to the...
