GEORGE BLISS, Jr. This work is designed for all those who desire to keep pace with the advance of Science and Art. The great and daily increasing number of discoveries in the different departments of science is such, and the announcement of them is scatt
e of secular and scientific publications, that it is very difficult for any one to obtain a satisfactory survey of them, even had he access to all these publications. Scientific Journals, especially those of Europe, besides being many of them in foreign languages, have a very limited circulation in this country, and are accessible to but very few. It is evident, therefore, that an annual publication, giving a complete and condensed view of the Progress of Discovery in every branch of Science and Art; being, in fact, The Spirit of the SCIENTIFIC JOURNALS of the year, systematically arranged, so as to present at one view, all the new discoveries, and improved processes of the past year, must be an acceptable volume to every one, and greatly facilitate the diffusion of useful knowledge.
The Editors are so situated as to have access to all the scientific publications of America, Great Britain, France, and Germany ; and bave also received for the present volume, the ap. probation as well as the counsel and personal contributions of many of the most scientific men in this country, among whom are Professors AGASSIZ, HORSFORD, and WYMAN, of Harvard University, and they have the promise in future from many scientific gentlemen, of articles, not published previously elsewhere.
The work in paper covers, will be sent by mail, free of postage, on the receipt of one dollar.
