Excerpt from On the Classification and Geographical Distribution of the Mammalia: Being the Lecture on Sir Robert Reade's Foundation, Delivered Before the University of Cambridge May 10, May to Which to Added Is Added an Appendix, Gorilla, and on the Extinction

Centuries elapsed ere any advance was made in the science of Zoology as it was bequeathed to the intellectual world by the mind of Aristotle. Of no other branch of human know ledge does the history so strongly exemplify the fearful phe nomenon of the arrest of intellectual progress, resulting in the dark ages.' The well-lit torch which should have guided to further explorations of the mighty maze of animated nature was suffered to fall from the master-hand, and left, to grow dim and smoulder through many generations ere it was re sumed, fanned anew into brightness, and a clear view re gained both of the extent of ancient discovery and of the right course to be pursued by modern research.
