PREFACE.

IN writing this Manual we have tried to keep before our eyes

Our thanks are due to Professor Simpson for his kind advice
in matters of difficulty: and specially to Mr J. A. Melville, for the
literary revision of the text and the preparation of the copious Table
of Contents and Indexes.

Messrs W. & A. K. Johnston have executed the lithographs with
their well-known accuracy and finish : and to Mr James Bayne we
are indebted for the care and fidelity with which he has drawn on the
wood the majority of the engravings. We have in all cases acknow-
ledged the source of every illustration not specially prepared for
this work.

EDINBURGH, July 1882.
