"As the title suggests, this volume provides a philosophical account of the works of nature relating to the scale of life on earth, including plants and animals. It also presents an account of the state of gardening throughout Great Britain and Great Britain, suggesting several new experiments relating to the improvement of barren ground, and the propagating of timber-trees, fruit-trees, etc. Of his work, the author states that it is not to be expected that in a volume as small as the present he will be able to give a full relation of the exterior and interior parts of bodies; nor can it be supposed that he will name every different mineral, plant, or animal that is commonly known. However, it is from our general sense of natural history, that he endeavors to lay the foundation of his building, and shall consider himself happy enough, if, among the parts that he does indeed touch upon, he has hit on anything new and useful"--Introduction.
