A MANUAL OF ROMAN ANTIQUITIES,
FOR THE USE OF ADVANCED STUDENTS.
By WILLIAM RAMSAY, M.A., Trin. Col. Camb., Professor of Humanity in the University of Glasgow.
“Contains the very best examples extant in print of the art of popu. larising science."-Spectator.
“One is left to wonder that the talented Professor should be able to engage the attention of youth with the elementary history of a candle, but with this candle he illuminates the whole range of chemical science."-Edinburgh Courant.
“An earnest book, showing fixed principles of a very high order not often met with in the present times."—Weekly Messenger.
“In this very ably written, and argumentatively sustained work, the author shows the self-contradictory theories of modern science, and that in astronomy and geology, facts received for years are now disputed. We had, therefore, much better reserve our faith for what are proved to be revelations from God, and not blindly yield it to human inventions."-Oxford Gazette.
