"This work examines the Fine Arts and attempts to form a standard of taste, by unfolding those principles that ought to govern the taste of every individual. To refine our taste with respect to beauties of art or of nature, is scarce endeavoured in any seminary of learning; a lamentable defect, considering how early in life taste is susceptible of culture, and how difficult to reform it if unhappily perverted. To furnish materials for supplying that defect, was an additional motive for the present undertaking." (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2008 APA, all rights reserved)
