PREFACE

OF THE

TRANSLATOR.

MR. CHARLES BONNET, of Geneva, from whose works I have seleEted and translated this volume, is not of the Clerical profession, but is a gentleman of independent fortune. He is held in the highest esteem in the literary world, as a metaphysician, philosopher, and explorer of nature. His deep views, and the light he has thrown on various subjects, give hin an undoubted claim to the reputation he enjoys.*

A complete and new edition of Mr. Bonnet's works was published in 1779, at Neufchatel, in 10 vols. 4to. and 18 yols. Svo.—T'he contents of the 8vo. edition are as follows: Treatise of Insectology

1 vol. Various Observations on Insects

1 Memoirs of Natural History

1 Inquiries concerning the use of Leaves 1 Considerations on Organized Bodies

2 Contemplations of Nature

3 Writings on Natural History

2 Letters on various Subjects of Natural History

1 Analytical Essay on the Faculties of the Soul 2 Essay on Psychology
