In the preparation of this Index, we have not aimed at either fullness or completeness. Had we done
so—had we attempted to point out in detail the various objects of interest with which the volume teems,
we should, from the very abundance of our resources, have utterly despaired. Whatever be the character
of our readers’ taste; whether for Philosophy, for Popular Science, for Biography, for Criticism, or for
General Information; in these pages each will find rich stores to draw from. We have sought merely to
indicate—jotting down, here and there, a bint, that, carefully heeded and pondered, will lead the thought-
ful reader to pursue for himself the subject thus suggested.
