*PREFACE - 'The Reader......... will not wonder to find in a Work under this Title, a great deal about Attraction, the laws of Motion, Gravitation, Air, Winds, Tides, Light, Heat, Cold, and the like; because he will find how they naturally lead to the Knowledge of some important Points of Practice, which without such previous Lights, must lie intirely in confusion, and upon the Hazard of Experiment and Guess-work.'
