Description

Quoted from the editor's "Introduction."

"THE CONTENTS of the following volumes may be divided into three portions. Firstly, the Miscellaneous Works published by the author during his lifetime, consisting of a lecture on the Influence of Women on Knowledge, of a review of Mr . Mill's work on Liberty, and of a short defence of this review under the name of `A Letter to a Gentleman on Pooley's Case.'

Secondly, of the contents of Mr. Buckle's Common Place Books, which fill the second and third volumes of the present work. These have been printed precisely as they were left by the author, with the exception of the omission of a few articles on account of the subjects of which they treated. The numbering has, however, been carried on as in the original, both on account of references to the articles by number in other places, and that those who care to do so, may see where omissions have occurred. The Index to the Common Place Books was made by the author himself, and has been printed verbatim; it therefore contains references to the omitted articles.

A large proportion of the Common Place Books, even when substantially extracted from other writers, is in Mr. Buckle's own words, especially towards the latter part. On this account it has been thought best to make as few alterations as possible in them as they originally stood, although the reader may observe many mistakes which the author would probably have corrected had he himself given the books to the press. But they have been left unaltered because some statements which may appear mistakes to the editor or reader might have proved to be deliberate opinions of the writer, which he might have been able to substantiate;
while the alteration or omission of others, about which there seems no room for doubt, would have diminished the autobiographical value of the remains — a great part of their value to the
general reader."
