AN ESSAY

ON

THE EDUCATION OF THE EYE

ILLUSTRATED BY PHOTO ENGRAVINGS

AND ETCHINGS

BY JOHN BURNET, F. R. S.

“ Visual impressions are those which in infancy furnish the principal means of developing the powers of
the understanding: it is to this class of principals that the philosopher resorts for the most apt and
perspicuous illustrations of his reasoning, and it is also from the same inexhaustible fountain that the poet
draws his most pleasing and graphic as well as his sublimest imagery."

DR. ROGET'S BRIDGEWATER TREATISK.
