Not illustrated. 1866 edition. Excerpt: ...1. See how this is in harmony with the account of his creation. Gen. ii. 7. 2. How philosophically true. Man lives by breathing; breathing in the vital air; breathing out the air used and vitiated, Living and dying-every moment. The air-cells of the lungs are about one-thousandth of an inch in diameter, and a hundred million in number.
