Descrizione
The writer does not claim absolute originality for all that appears in the following pages on the contrary, he has made free use Of all the materials that came within his reach relating to the history of the calendar and the work Of its correction by Gregory. These materials, together with his own calculations, he has ar ranged in accordance with a plan Of his own devising, SO that the outline and the execution Of the work may be truly said to be original. Of its value the world must judge. It has been prepared in weakness Of body and in sufi'ering, which have been to some extent re lieved by the mental occupation thus afforded, but which may have nevertheless left their impress on the work. But let it be read before pronouncing judgment upon it. Cicero could infer the littleness Of the Hebrew God from the smallness Of the territory he had given his people. TO whom Kitto replies: The interest and importance Of a country arise, not from its territorial extent, but from the men who form its living soul; from its institutions bearing the impress of mind and spirit, and from the events which grow out Of the char acter and condition Of its inhabitants. SO the value Of a book does not consist in the size and number of its pages, but from the knowledge that may be gained by its perusal. The author.
