Excerpt from Chemical Atlas: Or the Chemistry of Familiar Objects Of the value and importance of some such plan of illustrating Chemistry there can be no longer a doubt. Indeed, the surprise almost universally expressed is, that something of the kind was not devised and adopted long ago. The superiority of the eye over all other senses, as a means of edu cation, is undeniable. The beginning of the intellectual progress of the human race consisted in the invention of letters and words as visible symbols of sound and thought and to teach those symbols remains still the starting point of education. So also with music it rose to the dignity of a regular art only when musical notes were invented. By which it became possible to express harmonies of sound to the eye. The symbolism in both cases is perfectly arbitrary nevertheless, when once acquired, it becomes an instrument of wonderful intellectual power. But if the mind is capable of being thus greatly aided by ocular signs, when there is no natural relation between them and the objects they represent, how much more must its power be multiplied when the symbols it employs assume the pictorial character, and become in a manner actual imitations of the things to be considered.
