INTRODUCTION.

Man no sooner finds himself in possession of the various necessaries of life, than he begins to feel a wish for its conveniences; which when once obtained, seldom fail of indulging in some of its various refinements. The luxuries of the imagination is the delight of some, and those of the senses of others. The delicacies of the table supply the wants of some; while others have recourse to perfumes and esSences for their relief; most men are sensible to the gratification of the ear; and susceptible of those of the eye. Painting and sculpture as arts imitative of nature, have been the delight and study of civilized man in all ages, but in the embellishment of nature herself, much remains to be done, not only in the present age, but also in those which are to come.
