Description

The present volume deals with various aspects of human achievement and contribution in the comprehensive character of a general encyclopaedia. This encyclopaedia is designed to give a precise but succinct account of the principles of all the branches of human knowledge in a way acceptable both to general readers and specialists. The contributions, under various departments of subjects, are by specialists in their respective fields.

The analysis of language has produced results of the utmost importance not merely affecting the classifications of dialects, but throwing light on the many stages in the earliest development and history of the human mind, and on several subjects of the highest interest connected with the legends and poems, the laws and society of prehistoric ages. On the other hand, many words have been excluded which, although occasionally employed, lack that stamp of authority which alone can justify their insertion in a standard encyclopaedia.

This encyclopaedia includes terms on art, architecture, biological sciences, zoology, geography, physical geography, astronomy, chemistry, physics, law, history, mathematics, mineralogy, music, navigation, painting, fine art, printing, theology, agriculture, logic, mythology, physiology, political economy, building engineering and literature, etc.
