[ Natural history essays and contemplations, apparently written somewhat earlier whilst staying at a "nursery" in Southern Scotland. Subjects as diverse as the moor, showers, storms, the swallow, serpents, ruins, plants, clothing of vegetables and animals, the waterfall etc. I have been unable to trace anything of the author. The title page credits him as being the author of "The Friend of Youth" etc, .]
