"It is not an easy task to reconcile two subjects so far apart in the minds of most readers as Anatomy and the Fine Arts; but if prejudices, early imbibed, be thrown off, it will be found that there is no science, taken in a comprehensive sense, more fruitful of instruction, or leading to more interesting subjects of inquiry, than the knowledge of the Animal body. The academies of Europe, instituted for the improvement of painting, stop short of the science of anatomy, which is so well suited to enlarge the mind, and to train the eye for observing the forms of Nature; or if they enforce the study at all, it is only in its more obvious application, that of assisting the drawing of the human figure. But my design in this volume goes farther:--I purpose to direct attention to the characteristic forms of man and brutes, by an inquiry into the natural functions, with a view to comprehend the rationale of those changes in the countenance and figure which are indicative of Passion. A just feeling in the fine arts is an elegant acquirement, and capable of cultivation. Drawing is necessary to many pursuits and useful arts: Locke has included it amongst the accomplishments becoming a gentleman, and, we may add, it is much more useful to the artisan. Good taste and execution in design are necessary to manufactures; and consequently they contribute to the resources of a country"--Introduction.

Natural theology or, evidence of the existence and attributes of the deity, collected from the appearances of nature by William Paley( Book )
47 editions published between 1836 and 1879 in 3 languages and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
William Paley set out to prove the existence of God from the evidence of the beauty and order of the natural world. Famously beginning by comparing the world to a watch, whose design is self-evident, he goes on to provide examples from biology, anatomy, and astronomy in order to demonstrate the intricacy and ingenuity of design that could only come from a wise and benevolent deity. Paley's legalistic approach and skilful use of metaphor and analogy were hugely successful and equally controversial. Charles Darwin, whose investigations led to very different conclusions in The Origin of Species, was greatly influenced by the book's cumulative structure and accessible style

Maintaining and troubleshooting your 3D printer by Charles Bell( )
4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Maintaining and Troubleshooting Your 3D Printer by Charles Bell is your guide to keeping your 3D printer running through preventive maintenance, repair, and diagnosing and solving problems in 3D printing. If you?ve bought or built a 3D printer such as a MakerBot only to be confounded by jagged edges, corner lift, top layers that aren?t solid, or any of a myriad of other problems that plague 3D printer enthusiasts, then here is the book to help you get past all that and recapture the joy of creative fabrication. The book also includes valuable tips for builders and those who want to modify their printers to get the most out of their investment. Good fabrication begins with calibration. Aligning the print bed to support deposition of medium in three dimensions is critical. Even off-the-shelf machines that are pre-built must be aligned and periodically realigned throughout their life cycle. Maintaining and Troubleshooting Your 3D Printer helps you achieve and hold proper alignment. Maintaining and Troubleshooting Your 3D Printer also helps with software and hardware troubleshooting. You?ll learn to diagnose and solve firmware calibration problems, filament and feed problems, chassis issues, and more. Finally there are regular maintenance and enhancements. You?ve invested significantly in your 3D printer. Protect that investment using the guidance in this book. Learn to clean and lubricate your printer, to maintain the chassis, and know when realignment of the print bed is needed. Learn ways to master your craft and improve the quality of your prints through such things as post-print finishing and filament management. Don?t let the challenges of 3D printing stand in the way of creativity. Maintaining and Troubleshooting Your 3D Printer by Charles Bell helps you conquer the challenges and get the most benefit from your expensive investment in personal fabrication

"The more important endowments of life are bestowed upon the Nervous System, which embraces the Brain, the organs of the Senses, and the instruments of Volition. Through it are also communicated the sensibilities which control the instinctive or automatic movements. Thus it governs the actions of volition, as well as those movements which are appropriated to the vital organization. The Nervous System is therefore that part of Anatomy in which are to be discovered not only the different properties of the living fibre, but also the relations of the organs to each other, and the dependence of the muscular system upon those organs. The present volume contains many proofs that, by the advancement of anatomical science, we are enabled to make important practical distinctions; and these give value to that which can never be without interest to a student of nature. All the proofs of design, of relation, of prospective contrivance, which are deduced from the mechanical parts of the animal frame, are as nothing to the instances which the contemplation of the Nervous System affords. The relations to external nature, the sources of enjoyment, the provisions against injuries, the order and symmetry adapted to bestow motion and action, visible in the Nervous System, supply accumulated proofs of benevolence, as well as of divine intelligence, in the construction of our bodies"--Preface.
