"Let any well-informed man ask himself how many works he can rely on as authorities upon any given scientific subject; and he will find but very, very few, compared with the entire number of treatises upon it. The fact is, many men have no perception of the beauty, and consequently but little regard for the purity of science; and the publishers print the most inexact and erroneous writing, provided the public will consent to purchase it, which is too generally the case. This remark serves to shew how high an estimate ought to be set upon these volumes of Dr. Ure's, which consist chiefly of original and exact treatises, written with so much accuracy and care that they may be universally resorted to as authoritative,as indeed the former editions have been, as well by artists and manufacturers as by British and foreign scientific writers. The author has throughout the entire work kept most seriously before his mind the one object of promoting the best and most economical developments of the arts and manufactures; and has produced a work which altogether surpasses every other of its kind with which we are acquainted."

"Mr. Waterton's essays evince throughout the same love of nature, the same freshness of thought and originality of idea, and the same unartificial mode of treating the subject, as White's Natural History of Selborne; and no one would for a moment hesitate to place side by side in the foremost rank of popular writers on natural history, Gilbert White's Selborne and Charles Waterton's Essays and Autobiography."
