I. THE volume before us is composed of a series of essays, first published in the Catholic periodical, Natur und Offenbarung, in 1885–86. By far the greater part of it is, nevertheless, of a purely scientific character. The opening chapter alone enters upon theological considerations, which we cannot here pretend to discuss, recommending merely, in passing, the broad and wise doctrines it contains to the notice of those well-meaning persons who apprehend danger to creeds from speculations as to origins.
