Those which are here placed first are, more closely than any others, connected with the practical work of my life, - the advancement of scientific knowledge through the development of museums. Here I cannot refrain from expressing my deep sense of the loss this cause has recently sustained by the premature death of Dr. Brown Goode, Director of the United States National Museum.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
