9781330304600: Goldsmith's History of the Earth and Animated Nature: Abridged; Containing the Natural History of Animals, Birds, Fishes, Reptiles,& Insects; On the ... and Youth of Both Sexes (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Goldsmith's History of the Earth and Animated Nature: Abridged; Containing the Natural History of Animals, Birds, Fishes, Reptiles,& Insects; On the Plan Recommended by Miss. Hannah More; For the Use of Schools, and Youth of Both Sexes

In abridging a Work of acknowledged celebrity, an Author must, in some degree, be liable to disrepute; for many beautiful descriptions must of course be mutilated, and many interesting remarks necessarily withheld.

Doctor Goldsmith's History of Animated Nature is so justly and universally admired, that the slightest alteration in the original design may subject the Deviator to censure or disgrace; but whilst the Naturalist must admire his descriptions, the delicate mother may think them too replete, and fear that the young mind might be incited to investigate what ought only to be explained in maturer years.

The following Work is presented to the Public, and particularly to those who have the instruction of Youth, as a faithful transcript of the Originals descriptions, though more completely adapted for the Use of Schools.
