"Natural History, considered in its utmost extent, comprehends two objects. First, that of discovering, ascertaining, and naming all the various productions of Nature. Secondly, that of describing the properties, manners, and relations which they bear to us, and to each other. The first, which is the most difficult part of this science, is systematical, dry, mechanical, and incomplete. The second is more amusing, exhibits new pictures to the imagination, and improves our relish for existence, by widening the prospect of Nature around us. Natural history at present, is carried on in two distinct and separate channels, the one serving to lead us to the thing, the other conveying the history of the thing, as supposing it already known. The following Natural History is written with only such an attention to system as serves to remove the reader's embarrassments, and allow him to proceed

"Mr. Primrose, a simple village vicar, is living with his wife and six children in complete tranquility when unexpected calamities befall them. As the vicar's staunch assurance the "the loss of fortune only serves to increase the pride of the worthy" is put to the test, the labor of restoring their initial harmony begins. While the innocent Primrose family weathers one crisis after another, Goldsmith relates their improbable adventures with a light touch and charming dramatic irony."--Container
