Excerpt from Nature, Vol. 7: A Weekly Illustrated Journal of Science; November, 1872, to April, 1873 We most heartily join with Mr. Crookes in the h0pe he expresses at the end of his preface We cannot let this work pass out of our hands without expressing the hope that, at no distant date, chairs of Technology will be founded in all our universities, and that the subject will be included in the curriculum of every large school. Such an event could not fail to have the happiest effects on all; for, while it would set free the scientific student from a subject he does not require, it would enable those wishing to become managers of works or manufacturers, to study their special subjects in the best possible way.
