The Mechanism of the Heavens, or Familiar Illustrations of Astronomy: With Historical and Biographical Sketches (Classic Reprint)
If the present age is distinguished by more clear and just views of social and political science, it is not less marked by the disposition, so unequivocally and universally manifested, to reject the inordinate esti mate heretofore set upon merely ornamental literature: and while it does not refuse their just rank and inﬂ:u ence to such studies, it admits to that high considera tion to which they are entitled, the sciences which explain the beautiful phenomena of the physical world.
