Side iii - Instructions for Walking, Trotting, Cantering, Galloping, Stumbling, and Tumbling. Illustrated with 27 Coloured Plates, and adorned with a Portrait of the Author. By Geoffrey Gambado, Esq.
Side 212 - Phoebus' fiery car : The youth rush eager to the sylvan war, Swarm o'er the lawns, the forest walks surround, Rouse the fleet hart, and cheer the opening hound. Th...
Side 187 - See ! from the brake the whirring pheasant springs, And mounts exulting on triumphant wings : Short is his joy ; he feels the fiery wound, Flutters in blood, and panting beats the ground. Ah ! what avail his glossy, varying dyes, His purple crest, and scarlet-circled eyes, The vivid green his shining plumes unfold, His painted wings, and breast that flames with gold...
Side 202 - Better to hunt in fields for health unbought Than fee the doctor for a nauseous draught. The wise for cure on exercise depend ; God never made his work for man to mend.

The extension of the shoot, as Du Hamel justly remarks, is inversely as its induration, rapid while it remains herbaceous, but slow as it is converted into wood. Hence moisture and shade are the circumstances of all others the most favourable to elongation,...
Side 129 - Liber, from its having been anciently used to write upon, before the invention of paper.* If the cortical layers be injured or destroyed by accident, the part is again regenerated, and the wound healed up, without a scar. If the wound have penetrated beyond the Liber, the part is incapable of being regenerated ; because, when the surface of the alburnum is exposed to the air for any length of time, there will be no further vegetation in that part. But if the wound be not very large, it will close...
Side 141 - ... into the principal stem. This must consequently enlarge that stem, in a more than ordinary degree, by increasing the annual circles of the wood. Now, if the tree be in a worse soil and climate, than those which are natural to it, this will be of some advantage, as the extra...
