Excerpt from Elements of Astronomy

This Work has been printed for the use of the Students in the University. But as it may fall into the hands of some, not aware of this circumstance, who may expect many things, which are not found in it, and may also meet with others, some of which may not appear proper, and some not sufficiently illustrated, for an elementary treatise, it is necessary to give an explanation as to these.

A complete treatise on astronomy should abound with examples: but in a treatise merely designed to teach the outlines of the science, and to point out what may incite further inquiry, they are not required.

It is obvious that, in the necessarily restricted portion of time allotted to the science of Astronomy in the course of an University Education, a multitude of examples would, to the mass of students, be useless.
