Excerpt from The World of Wonders: A Record of Things Wonderful in Nature, Science, and Art

But if we confine ourselves to the wonders of this world, and do not soar to the three thousand worlds in the sky visible to the naked eye, nor to the fifty thousand stars that passed, says Sir William Her schel, f' over a field of view two degrees of breadth in a single hour, we shall have enough to do, and what we are about to endeavour we have, perhaps, sufficiently indicated to the reader. In all cases we shall give as far as possible the authorities on which our statements are based, though for the credibility of the facts related we cannot of course undertake to be responsible. The purely scientific wonders will be treated of by writers of eminence in their respective spheres.
